What people are saying:

A picture of Chinatown is from the top of the city hall. There are more old people on the street, can hear them still speak in the Chaoshan dialect. It is not lively during the day, I regret having lunch before coming, it should be eating here. Bought popsicles at the corner supermarket and listened to the clerk greeting the neighbors in Mandarin as if they had returned home.

Additional Information

Introduction

By 1870, a population of around 200 Chinese immigrants lived in a short and dim rear way; close to 50 feet wide. That was devastated to clear a path for Union Station and the developing Chinese population was moved to what used to be Los Angeles' Little Italy. Dumpling houses and the Hollywood variant of old Shanghai turned into the region where there were once wineries and trattorias. An old motion picture set was given to the 1930's re-vamping of the zone to give it an extraordinary look. Today, you will discover eateries, shops, and festivals in this vivid segment of the city.
