Flushing or Sunset Park for Chinese New Year?
Absolutely Flushing, but if you're planning on dinner make sure you have a reservation. It's also a bigger, more bustling neighborhood, so I'm sure there's more in the way of street celebration.
My top Flushing restaurant picks are:
Cantonese: Imperial Palace (my current favorite Chinese restaurant in NYC)
Hunan: Hunan House
Sichuan: a dead heat between Spicy & Tasty & Little Pepper
