The 41 notable rear entryways stuffed into Chinatown’s 22 squares have seen everything since 1849: dashes for unheard-of wealth and insurgency, incense and opium, fire, and frosty gatherings. In clinker-block structures covering these tight backstreets, sanctuary galleries stick out over pastry shops, laundries, and hairstylists – there was no place to go however up in Chinatown after 1870 when laws constrained Chinese migration, work, and lodging. Chinatown Alleyway Tours and Chinatown Heritage Walking Tours offer network supporting, time-traveling walks around vital turning points in American history.
