Chinatowns have been home to vibrant communities of Asian immigrants since the mid-19th Century. They provided the inhabitants with an entry point to support and services and a place to establish their new identity. However, many of these historic neighborhoods are now threatened by gentrification, aging populations, and assimilation. This one-hour documentary will explore three to five Chinatowns in America (New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, and Boston) and ask if these ethnic enclaves still have a place.
