Meanwhile in ethnoburbia

The new Chinatown in the San Gabriel Valley is developing an, um,

ersatz urbanism: the newest overgrown minimall on Valley Boulevard in

San Gabriel has three levels of shopping, dining, and offices, a fake

Italianate stair tower, two levels of underground parking, and a Hilton

hotel hidden on the side. All of this backs up to a single-family

residential alley and yes, there are street facing shops at the edges

of the U arrangement.
