Study: Chinatowns Getting Whiter

In Boston, Philly, and New York


The character of Manhattan's Chinatown is changing as new hotels and luxury condos open and the white population grows faster there than in other parts of the city, a new study shows.

"More and more young single people with much more wealth than immigrants are moving into these buildings," said Bethany Y. Li, a staff attorney at the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund in New York.
