Three Chinatowns Tour
Sunday, June 2, 2019
11am to 5pm
Since the 1965 change in immigration laws, Chinatowns in Brooklyn (Sunset Park) and Queens (Flushing) have developed along with Manhattan’s traditional Chinatown. Flushing native and Queens Borough Historian, Jack Eichenbaum, leads a walk in Flushing focused on the transformation of this neighborhood. Wellington Chen, Executive Director of the Chinatown Partnership, leads a walk in Manhattan’s Chinatown. Joe Svehlak, Sunset Park native and preservationist will lead the walk there.
We begin with an (optional) dim sum meal in Flushing (beginning at 9:30 AM.) A light lunch in Manhattan is included. More optional eats are suggested in Sunset Park. Transportation from Flushing to Manhattan via public van is included in the price of the tour but transportation from Manhattan to Brooklyn will be by subway using your Metro card. Fee $60 per person.
This tour is limited to 25 participants. Registration and payment in advance is required. Send a check to Jack Eichenbaum, 36-20 Bowne St. #6C, Flushing, NY 11354 (include name(s) and email address.)
