Chinese new year

I will be in New York with my family in mid Feb next year, as far as I know the Chinese New Year starts on Sunday 18th Feb and we would like to know the best places to go in New York to see any good parades etc and to eat good chinese food whilst we are there

Any good suggestions?

  1. As far as public festivities are concerned, I think the Lunar New Year Parade is the only real spectacle, and it's typically held on the second Sunday of the Lunar New Year. I'm sure they're planning stuff out, but I don't know that any of the information has been publicized. Check the Explorechinatown website linked below as the date approaches. Note that the webpage for the 2006 New Year linked below lists Chinatown restaurants that have Chinese New Year special dinners. (Note also that the 2007 New Year page is blank.)
