Description

Chicago’s Chinatown is located in the Armour Square community – also the home of the White Sox! The Chinese population moved to this area in the early 1900s. In the 1980s the Chinatown area was increased with the purchase of the land that now includes a two-level mall, townhouses and condominiums. The Chinatown community continues to grow and thrive. The area has a wide variety of restaurants, gift shops, grocery stores, Chinese medicine stores and cultural spots.

What you’ll see:

Chinatown Square and the 12 Bronze Chinese Zodiac Statues

The Chinatown Gate

Pui Tak Center Building

The Nine Dragon Wall

Ping Tom Memorial Park

Chinatown Mural

Chinese American Veteran’s Memorial

St. Therese Church
