Welcome to Chicago’s Chinatown
Chicago’s Chinatown is on the near South Side, centered on Cermak and Wentworth Avenues. It is an example of an American Chinatown, or ethnic-Chinese neighborhood. According to the 2000 Census, Chicago Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas has more than 68,000 Chinese. Although smaller in size compared to New York?s Chinatown, Chicago holds the title for the second largest Chinatown in the U.S. due to fact that the number of people actually living and working in Chinatown is higher than that of New York.
Chinatown is home to a number of banks, Chinese restaurants, gift shops, grocery stores, Chinese medicine stores, as well as a number of services that cater to people interested in Chinese culture. It is a community hub for Chinese people in Chicagoland, a business center for Chinese in the Midwest, as well as a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.
