Can Transit Save Chinatown?
"Hopes for the district's revival are riding on the rails of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Gold Line, which travels 14 miles from downtown Pasadena to Los Angeles' Union Station, with a stop at the Chinatown Station at Spring and College streets... Now, the new light-rail line is giving Chinatown 'a wonderful excuse to pull itself together,'... There are big plans. Director Quentin Tarantino is in talks to purchase the vacant King Hing theater. The renovation of the Tin Hau Buddhist temple is slated for completion by Chinese New Year in January. Steve Riboli, owner of the San Antonio Winery just north of Chinatown, is pushing for- ward a proposal to convert the Capitol Mills site, once a grain mill and silo, into lofts and artists' space."
