Previously we've looked at Coney Island, the Lower East Side, and all of the boroughs during a time that you didn't even exist in, and now let's take a look back at Chinatown. Click through for scenes from the neighborhood in the late 1800s, all the way up to 1940 (which, fine, maybe you saw the area with your own eyes then, but you probably don't remember it).
