We have all visited Chinatown at some point in our college years. However, have you ever wondered about the history of the neighborhood beyond tasty Chinese food? This tour will enable you to explore the past, present and future of Chinatown by visiting various historical sites and hidden cultural gems in the neighborhood. We will learn about how urban renewal affected Chinatown in the 1960's and what people have done to revitalize the once vibrant community. By end of the tour, we will gain a better understanding of the history of Chinese immigration to the Boston area, which will help us better appreciate modern-day Chinatown. We will meet at 10:15 am outside Boylston Station, and finish the tour at around 12:00, after which we will enjoy a Dim Sum lunch at Boston Great Taste Bakery/Restaurant (樂嚐軒西餅茶餐廳). If time permits, participants may do some Chinese New Year shopping afterwards. -Open to the public, but reservation is required(see below) -Tour is free of charge; please bring cash for dim sum lunch -Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes! ***RESERVATION IS REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT.
