Chinatown NYC Returns with Wellington Z. Chen, Executive Director of the Chinatown Business Improvement District

As the NYC economy recovers from the pandemic, leaders like Wellington Z. Chen, the Executive Director of the Chinatown BID and the Chinatown Partnership, are working hard in guiding the overall direction and strategic repositioning of some of the most iconic neighborhoods for the future.

Chinatown is one of NYC’s most interesting and historic neighborhoods. It’s home to a large population of Asian residents, Chinese restaurant palaces, dumpling shops and inexpensive noodle joints.  

Hear Chen discuss what’s been happening lately in Chinatown, how the small businesses there have been getting through this period of time and what transformative projects are happening which will welcome visitors and tourists back to the beloved NYC Chinatown area.
