China Town, Los Angeles, California, USA – Heroes Of Adventure

China Town, Los Angeles, California, USA

Chinatown is a popular neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles, California that became a commercial center for Chinese and other Asian businesses in Central Los Angeles in 1938. The area includes fabulous restaurants, shops and art galleries but also has a residential neighborhood with a low-income, aging population of about 10,000 residents.

The original Chinatown developed in the late 19th century, but it was demolished to make room for Union Station, the city’s major ground-transportation center. A separate commercial center, known as “New Chinatown,” opened for business in 1938.

There are two schools and a branch library in Chinatown, as well as a city park, a state park and a medical center and hospital. Many motion pictures have been filmed in the area.
