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.
