“Chop Suey Republic”

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has a very nice article on the Chinatown Renewal Project, “Steinbeck’s City to Restore 1940s Building in Chinatown.”

More than just “historic preservation,” what I like about the Chinatown Renewal project is that, like the San Francisco Manilatown project, the Salinas Chinatown Renewal project aims to make the area once again a functioning, valuable part of the larger community, while retaining its own historical and ethnic identity.
