Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corp. (CPLDC)

Chinatown Partnership was formed in 2006 as new start-up from grounds up to bring residents, business owners and community groups together to rebuild Chinatown following 9/11, and to preserve the neighborhood's unique culture while ensuring its vitality in the future through strategic positioning. Through the Explore Chinatown marketing initiative, Lunar Stages outdoor film screenings, and Taste of Chinatown street events, CPLDC helps promote the area as a special destination to live, work, and visit. Recent activities include the highly popular Weekend Walks street festival series, Mid-Autumn Festival, annual Beautification/Earth Day, East West Parade with Little Italy, and the Double Valentine’s Day promotion to showcase the softer side of Chinatown and the Bowery Jewelry District, and all the cafes/eateries within the area.
