Chinatown Walking Tour

Chinatown Walking Tour

The seminar is only two weeks away! Hopefully all of the participants have had a chance to get ahead on the readings

The organizers are really excited about the seminar now that most of the activities and outings have been finalized. To help everyone else get excited, check out this walking tour of Manhattan Chinatown that someone (else) created. It only covers a small portion of Chinatown, but might be a good starting point for folks who are new to New York City. We will go on a guided tour of Manhattan Chinatown during the seminar, but for participants coming in early, this might be a fun afternoon excursion before the seminar gets underway. This also serves as a nice preview of the type of resource participants will be creating to take back to their communities after the seminar!
