Well, that's one possibility. But when I looked at another forum post on a San Antonio Chinatown, they said the closest thing we had to it was on Bandera or Evers, and since I go over there occasionally, I see a few line of restaurants and stores, but there's not a high density of Asian establishments.

But your question also poses another thing I don't like/would like to see: more information/history on the Black experience in San Antonio. There's a lot of "hidden" history on that that is rarely shared, much less so outside the Black community.

I hate the ugly landscape of the area. (It is looking better these days thanks to all the rain of course.)
I hate 1604 between Potranco and Bandera.
I hate Frontage roads!
How can you hate frontage roads? Have you ever not had them? Driving in states without them is a pain. Thats the one thing I love about TX. I also love the landscape. The hill country is beautiful.

1604 is a joke, as everyone else has already said and San Antonio pays crap for the most part, so that sucks too. The RIM is awesome and downtown riverwalk and the history of the city are great too.
