About

Photo Tour & Neighborhood Exploration
Presented with the Museum of Chinese in America
215 Centre Street, Manhattan

How do a neighborhood’s borders impact its residents? Join us for an afternoon exploration in which participants trace the shifting boundaries and hidden stories of Lower Manhattan’s Chinatown. Accompanied by leaders in the realm of social media documentation, we’ll collectively walk the neighborhood’s perimeters, generating an alternative cartography of Chinatown’s invisible gateways along the themes of housing, food, contemporary art, and more by posting to Instagram with the hashtag #ChinatownEdges. 

Afterward, join us for a discussion of the neighborhood’s thresholds and the role of social media in community mapping, accompanied by a projection of the afternoon’s photos as a backdrop.
