    Cleveland's Chinatown, served with an extra helping of GRIT (broadband recommended)

    I don't know too much about the history of Chinatown in Cleveland, but Ic an say it's not much compared to the Chinatowns of cities like Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia or even Denver. Cleveland's Chinatown is essentially a poor neighborhood just east of downtown, one of those gritty turn-of-the-last-century neighborhoods where industry, retail uses and residences all intertwine, that just happens to havea much larger-than-average Asian-American population.

    If you've ever driven through Cleveland, Chinatown is to the southeast of Dead Man's Curve on I-90.

    Here's Chinatown.

    Thanks for the pics. Thats the most un-Chinatown of the Chinatowns I've seen.

    Exactly. It looks like the un-gentrified parts of Chicago's Near West Side, or parts of Detroit, except with a Chinese presence.
