Many of these products are still made on site in the neighborhood – from Chinese sausages to silky tofu, from printed wedding invitations to custom dresses. Chinatown continues to be a destination for Chinese Americans hoping to maintain and rediscover their cultural heritage and create lasting memories amongst their family and friends.
