Chinatown
Did you join Urban Trek USA's Historical San Francisco tour (Trek 4) where you went through Chinatown and are interested in learning a bit more about San Francisco's Chinatown (and other Chinatowns)? It would be worth listening to this interesting radio interview of Bonnie Tsui, author of "American Chinatow," on Michael Krasny's radio show Forum. The first 20 minutes or so has the most talk about San Francisco's Chinatown.
