Led by Sharon Sekhon this Walking Tour explores the different generations and re-generations of communities comprising this vibrant and now Chinese neighborhood. This neighborhood also hosted Italian, Croatian, French, & Mexican American communities throughout the late 19 th and 20 th centuries. Los Angeles' original Chinatown was razed in 1938 to make room for Union Station. As a result, this Chinatown was a planned community that attempted to reflect the Chinese community that was displaced here.
