Chinatown Atlas unveiled
By Ling-Mei Wong
The Chinatown Atlas, an infographic of Chinatown’s development since the 1800s, was unveiled Feb. 15.
“The Chinese have community activism, along with the Josiah Quincy school and elderly housing,” said Tunney Lee, retired professor of urban studies and planning at MIT. “I see Chinatown flourishing for the next 20 to 30 years.”
“While Syrian and Italian immigration has stopped, Chinese immigration has continued,” Lee said. “We have to prepare and fight. We’re not going to be taken over.”
