There are some similarities between Chinatowns the world over (including tasty

food and cheap goods), but this discussion explores one challenge particular to Gotham’s Far Eastern enclave. Panelists—including artist Tomie Arai, whose work is currently on view at MOCA—will discuss how commercial developments are changing the downtown district and impacting its residents.
