Every day in Chinatown, the markets on Mott St. between Canal St. and Hester St. are bustling.Chinatown locals, tourists from all over the world, and New Yorkers of every creed and colour come to shop, sight-see, and experience the scene.
Business Insider went down to Chinatown to take a look at the market and the oddities there.
