Chinatown Partnership About Us

about us

Chinatown Partnership, led by Wellington Chen, was formed in 2006 as new start-up from grounds up to bring residents, business owners and community groups together to rebuild Chinatown following 9/11, and to preserve the neighborhood's unique culture while ensuring its vitality in the future through strategic positioning. With the highly popular Weekend Walks street festive series, Mid-Autumn Festival, One Day in NYC, annual Beautification/Earth Day, East West Parade with Little Italy, Double Valentine’s Day to promote the softer side of Chinatown and the Jewelry District and all the cafes, eateries in the area. Explore Chinatown marketing initiative, Lunar Stages outdoor film screenings, and Taste of Chinatown street events, Chinatown Partnership helps promote the area as a special destination to live, work, and visit.

In the last 2 plus years Chinatown Partnership has been working with the Chinatown Business Improvement District to engage the community and lead efforts to improve the neighborhood’s physical environment through the Clean Streets initiative, streetscape improvements, enhanced lighting gateways, and wayfinding projects such as the NYC Dept. of Transportation's WalkNYC. During Superstorm Sandy and other storms the two organizations in conjunction with other elected officials use our office as the Superstorm Relief and Coordination Center during the blackout and afterwards with private fundraising, language translation, etc. Just like the 2010 joint workshop with Red Cross folks from all boroughs came in to attend the emergency workshops and to obtain several red Go bags. These are just a small sampling of what type of initiatives and groundwork that have prepared.

Note: to help explain what has been done the Chinatown Partnership/Chinatown BID have provided copies of their annual report from the last few years. Guests are welcome to subscribe to their popular newsletter with several thousand subscribers as well as their account.
