Chinatown Partnership

Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corporation (CPLDC), led by Wellington Chen, 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.

About the

Weekend Walks, Mid-Autumn Festival, and annual Beautification/Earth Day are a few of the many popular events that the Chinatown Partnership helps promote, making Chinatown a special destination to live, work, and visit.
Since 2012, Chinatown Partnership has been working with the Chinatown Business Improvement District to engage the community and lead efforts to improve the neighborhood’s physical environment through the Clean Streets initiative, streetscape improvements, enhanced lighting gateways, and wayfinding projects such as the NYC Dept. of Transportation’s WalkNYC. During Superstorm Sandy and other storms, the two organizations in conjunction with elected officials have used our office as a Superstorm Relief and Coordination Center during the blackout and afterwards to conduct private fundraising, translation services, etc.  We have also hosted joint emergency preparedness workshops with the American Red Cross with attendees from all boroughs to obtain Go Bags. These are just a small sampling of the type of initiatives and groundwork that has been prepared.
