Be “wowed” by Philadelphia’s Chinatown! Settled in the mid-19th century by Cantonese immigrants, the neighborhood is situated between Arch & Vine Streets and 7th to Broad Streets.
Built in 1982 and symbolizing the connection between Philadelphia and its sister city Tianjin, you simply cannot miss the vibrant and colorful China Gate at 10th & Arch Street. The gate serves as the “welcome sign” for the neighborhood. Some residents even say you should kiss someone when passing beneath the gate.
This terrific pocket directly north of City Hall is known mostly for its exotic cuisine and quirky shops. Among the business scene, the area also features stunning loft-style homes with high ceilings and exposed brick, reminiscent of New York style living. Walk easily to many conveniences and enjoy close access to bus routes and the Race St subway line. Chinatown is a great hub to explore the rest of the city.
