Neighboring Chinatown is not just for food and tourism. There is a thriving art scene there as well. HT Chen has been running his acclaimed modern dance company and school out of the Chen Dance Center in the heart of Chinatown on Mulberry Street for over 30 years. The Museum of Chinese in America, on Centre Street, has been the national home for the diverse Chinese American communities since 1988, and strives to be a model among interactive museums. Its innovative exhibitions, educational and cultural programs continually bring 160 years of Chinese American history to life.
