Integrating the Streetcar into an International Neighborhood

As a Pacific Rim city, Seattle boasts a vibrant International District that remains the cultural hub of the city’s diverse Asian-American community, home to the city’s Chinatown, one of the few international neighborhoods in the city. On this tour, learn how the modern Seattle Streetcar integrated into this historic, multicultural, multi-generational community—a task that brought challenges and opportunities in this changing neighborhood. We’ll also see early 20th-century commercial and hotel buildings, and hear about community-sponsored park and alley transformation projects that will expand the district’s pedestrian realm.
