Which Chinatown in New York has more Asian influence on it? I personally think that Flushing has taken the lead over Chinatown in Manhattan. I'm aware that there are Chinatowns in Brooklyn as well.

The "real" Chinatown is in Flushing.

Shouldn't this be in the NYC forum?

Isn't that more of a Korean town?

I like the Chinatown in Manhattan more but Flushing is no sleeper.

I actually prefer Flushings for food, Manhattan for easier access and location.

I realize you're comparing Chinatowns, but you're not doing so by comparing those in the NYC area to those elsewhere (Vancouver, San Fran, etc). So yes, this is more appropriate in the NY forum than city-vs-city. Moving.

One does not quite understand what you mean by "more Asian influence." The Chinese neighborhood in Manhattan is arguably New York's oldest--since all the other Chinese communities in the other boroughs (and you didn't mention the one establishing itself in The Bronx) are all offshoots of the original. Any day of the week, you can see Chinese people from the other boroughs traveling to work or shop in Manhattan's Chinatown. When you look at it that way, there's no question but that Chinatown has the most influence.
