Highlights include:

Waverly Place, site of the largest Tong Battle in Chinatown history,

620 Jackson Street, home of the “Municipal Brothel,”

Washington Street, scene of the Golden Dragon Massacre,

Spofford Alley, home of the The Chee Kung Tong, the mother of all tongs,

Clay and Grant Street, site of Billy Mulligan’s last stand,

Bartlett Alley, center of Chinese slavery and prostitution,

We will conclude our tour back where we began, at the oldest bar in Chinatown, Red’s Place. This is where the Chinatown Squad hung out and where we can hang out and chat over spirits about the spirits of the neighborhood's dangerous past.
