Hello, I am a Temple University student doing a project on northward expansion development of Chinatown above North Street. I was just hoping you organiztion could give any information on development trends by the Chinese community to move Northward. This info would be of great help.

i wish i had seen this 2 years ago. The Chinese community made some inroads north of Chinatown but the Vine St. Expressway, the old rail viaduct, and all the warehouses around Spring Garden St. made it too difficult.

If you want to see where the community is growing follow the old couples and kids to the 47 bus on 8th St. and watch where they get off. Mostly around Snyder Ave. is my guess.
