UMass Boston Student-led Tours of Chinatown.
14 stops with many facts of the community that will surprise you!
Meet at the Kwong Kow School, 87 Tyler Street to assemble 10 minutes before tour time below. Did you know that Chinatown was built on top of a landfill? Chinatown is still booming with Asian/Asian American people who live, work, and play on the streets of Boston. Boston’s Chinatown is the third largest Chinatown in the U.S. The UMass Boston student-led tour will focus on Chinese Language and Culture. Students will share Confucian themes that guide the community and families, are emphasized on the next generation in heritage schools and centers, and are found in the naming of residential development properties. It’s a truly unique and genuine American neighborhood!
