Yesterday, we took a look at a Wall Street Journal article that reported on a new crop of shops, galleries, and condos popping up in Chinatown, attracting both a hipster crowd and real estate developers. While developments like Essex Crossing are definitely setting parts of the neighborhood on the gentrification track, other areas are still full of open-air fish markets, Chinese specialty shops, and rows and rows of tenements, seemingly unchanged from decades ago. With this collision of worlds happening, we want to know which way you think Chinatown is going to go.
