Yes CA. has the largest in the USA. Rightfully noted/corrected.

With that my point holds true. Philadelphia has one of the best Chinatowns in the USA

Tops def. go to both L.A and S.F. I have not been to Seattle but my guess is there's is quite renowned given their West Coast presence.

Then Chicago. NYC.

and well Philadelphia for sure.

Have you also considered Honolulu? Yes, it's expensive but not as extreme as SF or LA. It's also more walkable than Portland.

It is by far one of the most vibrant and in tact chinatowns in the nation. SOOO many amazing food options and such an amazing Chinese culture, as well as some Japanese influences. It is FAR better than D.C chinatown and I will rate it #2 on the East Coast after NYC.
I have been and I do like it. As an authentic neighborhood it is obviously much better than DC but DC is a unique case. DC Chinatown is a cool neighborhood, for what it is. I believe there's only one business left that existed back when it was an actual Chinese neighborhood.

Yes!! I don't know HNL at all (besides very vague memories from a short visit as a very young kid) but I have assumed it will be a quality option once I eventually get around to spending some time there. I'm in no hurry so I figure when the rail system is operating in a decade it'll be ready for me and my family lol.
