900 N. Broadway

Earlier Chinese communities were located farther south, closer to the center of downtown. It was displaced to its current location in the late 1930s to make way for the construction of Union Station. The "New Chinatown" encompasses several blocks along north Broadway and Hill St. It is home to a Chinese population of about 15,000 and also fulfills a major tourist function. In recent years an even newer Chinese enclave has developed several miles to the east in and around the suburban community of Monterey Park.
