Global Chinese Mission: While in many places in the world both the infrastructure and demographics of Chinatown appeal only to older people, Chicago's Chinatown is drawing both new immigrants as well as Americanborn Chinese. Many shops and restaurants cater to these younger Englishspeaking Chinese who go there to meet friends.
