Just north of Philadelphia’s Center City District is Philadelphia’s Chinatown. Compared to Chinatowns in several other U.S. cities, Philadelphia’s Chinatown is relatively small. It is widely recognized that the first Chinese business opened in this area was in 1860 when Lee Fong opened a laundry at 913 Race Street.
Within this relative small area, however, are over 50 Chinese and other Asian restaurants as well as churches, a Buddhist temple, many gift shop, 15 grocery stores, oriental specialty markets. an Asian bank and several manufacturers of such items as fortune cookies and Chinese noodles.
