The Chinatown neighborhood in Chicago is located in the Armour Square community area at Cermak and Wentworth Avenues and is a wonderful example of an ethnic-Chinese neighborhood. By 1869, approximately 600 Chinese immigrants had settled along Clark Street between Van Buren and Harrison Streets in Chicago's Loop. The present Chicago Chinatown formed around 1912 as Chinese settlers moved steadily south from the Loop.
