Chinatown is a neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles that first attracted Chinese and other Asian businesses and residents in the late 1930’s. The area is generally defined by the 101 freeway on the south side, the 110 on the north west side, and the I-5 freeway on the east side. Chinatown includes the smaller neighborhoods of Missing Junction and Glendale Junction. Surrounding areas include Elysian Park, Solano Canyon, Cypress Park, Lincoln Heights, Olvera Street, Union Station, Little Tokyo, Bunker Hill, and Echo Park. There are 2 public and 1 private school in Chinatown, as well as a public library, and several public parks- Radio Hill Gardens, and Los Angeles State Historic Park, and access to the southern part of Elysian park. The Chinatown of today started out as “Old Chinatown” centered around Alameda and Cesar Chavez Avenue, and at one time was a part of the Little Italy area of Los Angeles which it has long since surpassed and encompassed. There are many other nearby attractions in addition to the many retail stores, restaurants, and shopping areas of Chinatown- Dodger Stadium is located just next door on the north west side, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Geffen Museum of Contemporary Art, the San Antonio Winery, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, and of course, all the services and businesses in Downtown L.A.
