Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room



The Chinese Friendship Gate welcomes people to Chinatown, the residential and commercial hub of Philadelphia’s Asian community. Stretching over 10th Street just north of Arch Street, it stands at 40 feet tall and is the first authentic gate ever constructed by Chinese artisans outside of China.
