“Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.”
- Matsuo Basho
Boston's most action-packed neighborhood slices, dices, spins, and stomps with finesse. Once garment and leather factories moved into the neighborhood in the 19th century, many immigrants vacated the noisy transport and entertainment hub. But with anti-Asian sentiment codified in the 1882 U.S. Chinese Exclusion Act, Chinese Bostonians were left with few alternatives. Today Chinatown remains a key entry point for new arrivals, and some 70 percent of its current residents claim Asian heritage. Chinatown provided a buffer between the PG-rated Theater District and the XXX Combat Zone until the 1990s, when redevelopment and online porn ousted the downtown sex trade. But Chinatown diners still stay open late to serve crowds fresh from Boston Ballet at the Wang Theatre, Stomp at the historic Culter Majestic Theatre, and too-close-for-comfort comedy shows at tiny Wilbur Theatre. Chinatown has become a dining destination in its own right, from traditional fresh-from-the-aquarium family feasts at New Jumbo Seafood to creative pan-seared, pan-Asian dumplings at Myers+Chang. Watch late-night rap battles unfold at Good Life, and greet the new day with dumplings at Winsor Dum Sum Café.
