Chinatown Gate

On NW 4th and Burnside.

 

According to Powell’s, “In the early decades of the city, Portland had one of the country’s largest Chinese populations, second only to San Francisco. This lavish red gate with five roofs, 64 dragons, and 2 huge lions was dedicated in 1986 to commemorate this rich history.”
