Program Description
Program focuses on recent physical developments occurring within and around Boston's Chinatown neighborhood, namely the construction of the Tufts-New England Medical Center, Lafayette Place, and Park Plaza. Say Brother researcher Eileen Yang speaks with Jane Leung (of the Boston Chinese YES), Peter Chan (manager, Little City Hall), May Ling Tong (of the Chinese Economic Development Council), Alice Boelter (of the Boston Redevelopment Authority), Jim Yee (of Quincy Community Council), and Thomas Murnane (Vice-President, Tufts University) about their perspectives on the pending construction, how it will affect the growth of Chinatown, and whether or not it will negatively impact the community. All interviews shot on location. Considered a one-hour documentary special.
