  • The Atlantic Cities relates the findings of a recent report (prepared by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund) concerning the demographic effects of gentrification in the East Coast’s three largest Chinatowns in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. “Researchers say the neighborhoods are rapidly getting more expensive and less useful to the people who need them most. From 2000 to 2010, the share of the Asian population fell in all three Chinatowns. In Boston, it dropped from 57 percent of the population in 2000 to 46 percent in 2010; in New York, it shifted from 48 percent to 45 percent. In Philadelphia is fell from 49 percent to 42 percent.”
