Relive Life under the Chinese Exclusion Act.
With a history of over 160 years, Chinatown is one of NYC’s oldest neighborhoods. Experience Chinatown through the intimate lens of the Chinese Exclusion Act, the first U.S. law that banned an entire ethnic group from coming into this country for more than 60 years.
Through our immersive tour, you’ll discover the dark origins of the neighborhood, hear stories of assimilation and sacrifice, and learn about the challenges that Chinese-Americans continue to face in pursuit of the American Dream.
You'll start off the experience at the statue of Lin Ze Xu, where you'll learn about the general history of the Chinese Exclusion Act. Then, you'll be taken through a tour of the 3 oldest streets of Chinatown and immerse yourselves in the historical shops and institutions in the area and learn about the different industries that the Chinese community went into. You'll end the tour with a discussion of the current issues still facing the Asian American Community.
