A walk through Boston's Chinatown neighborhood offers the momentary illusion of being transported to foreign country. Storefronts with signs in Chinese characters, Asian architectural details on buildings and the streets teeming with pedestrians speaking other languages do wonders at keeping the illusion alive. Bounded by the Boston Common, Theater district and South Station, Chinatown is a lively community of new and established immigrants. Like other Chinatown neighborhoods throughout North America, Boston's Chinatown is rich with restaurants and shops and other businesses targeting the diverse Asian community. Despite its name, Chinatown is not exclusively Chinese. Restaurants offering Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and Cambodian cuisine suggest that the residents hail from countries besides China. Indoor and outdoor markets sell fresh produce and fish and there are several restaurant supply companies, all with great bargains. One of the many Chinese bakeries is a great place to buy a New Year moon cake. The community here has created a great network of agencies and organizations. Various groups such as the Chinese Culture Center on Harrison Avenue and the Asian Community Development Corporation support Chinatown residents and promote the history and preservation of this important neighborhood, considered to be the most densely populated in Boston. By some accounts there are as many pedestrians in the street as there are vehicles in this compact four block neighborhood. The principal streets are Washington and Kneeland, but almost every side street offers Chinatown's typical blend of multi-story residential buildings beside small restaurants and family run businesses. There is an astounding decorative Chinese style gate, reminiscent of The Forbidden City that serves as a monument in this highly welcoming neighborhood. Also several building fronts are decorated with colorful murals, adding to the community's Asian cultural flavor. The Chinese Cultural Society of New England operates a Chinese Heritage Trail that offers Chinatown's past century of history. « Show less
