Although not one of the country's larger 'Chinatowns', the main drag on Wentworth Avenue is worth the brief side trip from the Loop for the curious. You will find an assortment of shops, restaurants and the butchers with skinned ducks hanging in the windows. Fueled by an influx of money from wealthy Chinese developers looking to diversify their holdings outside of Hong Kong, Chinatown is looking to expand its boundaries. A new shopping center was recently completed, and Chinatown has reportedly been put on the Mayor's list of neighborhoods up for urban renewal and redevelopment.
