About Seattle: Seattle’s Chinatown - Seattle International District, a neighborhood nestled south of downtown, is the cultural hub of the Asian American community. It rose not far from the waterfront, on reclaimed tide flats. During a gigantic city regarding project, the Jackson Street Regrade, completed in 1910, this muddy wasteland was filled in with earth, buildings were erected and the Chinatown – International District was born.
