Episode 1 Our Chinatown

Chinatown means many things to the business owners and residents who call the community home — long days, back-breaking work, a painful past, belonging, resilience, opportunity, the American dream. And as they look to the future, legacy. In Our Chinatown, legacy business owners reflect on 2020 and the importance of family as a throughline of Chinatown’s past, present, and future. “Even against all odds, you can still make it. The American dream is still here in Chinatown.” —Jefferson Li, 47 Division St. Trading Co.
