Economic & Industrial Redevelopment
In 2008, PCDC received funding for a Main Street Program from the PA Commerce Department to promote economic development and outreach to the business community in Chinatown. Since the program’s inception, the Main Street Manager and Main Street Committee have organized multiple promotional events to enhance Chinatown’s image as a commercial and tourist attraction. These events include the recent Chinatown Block Party, which drew over 3,000 to 4,000 visitors to the neighborhood and positive media. Other events include the annual Chinatown Restaurant Week and Chinese New Year Celebration.
