Teenage Chinatown residents guide you on two-hour tours through backstreets that have seen it all – Sun Yat-sen plotting China's revolution, '49ers squandering fortunes on opium, services held in temple ruins after the 1906 earthquake. Your presence here helps the community remember its history and shape its future – Chinatown Alleyway Tours is a nonprofit youth-led program of the Chinatown Community Development Center.
