Remembering Pittsburgh's Chinatown

It was a thriving part of downtown Pittsburgh. But not everyone knows the history of this tiny Chinese immigrant community – once located between Grant and Ross Streets. The 1920s ushered in the beginning of its disappearance - largely because of the construction of a major roadway, the Boulevard of the Allies. Today, the popular Chinatown Inn is the only significant remnant of a bygone era.
