Chinatown arch in DC will be restored

Washington, DC USA

Chinatown arch to get major makeover - Washington Business Journal


'The 23-year-old iconic Chinatown arch stretching over H Street, which celebrates the neighborhood’s Asian roots and predates tourists scuffling its now-busy streets, will get its first makeover.'

'The $1 million piece of public art, which was decorated in the style of the Ming and Qing dynasties and dubbed the “Friendship Archway,” was built by the D.C. and Beijing governments to mark the Chinatown area as a place for Asian trade.'
