Dynamics of the Restaurant Industry in Chinatown, Manhattan: A Policy Analysis

Yang, Kun

Restaurants in Chinatown have long been classified as part of its small businesses and studied in the sense of economic development of the neighborhood. In contrast, this paper studies the restaurant industry in Chinatown as a subject separated from other industries, emphasizing its uniqueness. It strives to explore the questions: How did Chinatown’s restaurant industry evolve through history? How did the interventions from stakeholders influence the restaurants? The study aims to find a way to help Chinatown’s restaurants survive against future difficulties.
