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. With the highly popular Weekend Walks street festive series, Mid-Autumn Festival, One Day in NYC, annual Beautification/Earth Day, East West Parade with Little Italy, Double Valentine’s Day to promote the softer side of Chinatown and the Jewelry District and all the cafes, eateries in the area. Explore Chinatown marketing initiative, Lunar Stages outdoor film screenings, and Taste of Chinatown street events, Chinatown Partnership helps promote the area as 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.
