Chinatown Alleyway Tours is a youth-run, youth-led group that leads tours of Chinatown’s historic alleyways. In response to shelter in place orders, a group of ambitious youth leaders aged 14-20 spent nearly three months recreating San Francisco’s Chinatown block-by-block in the 3D video game Minecraft and then opened it up for monthly guided tours.
Don’t worry if you’ve never used Minecraft before, the guides screen share using Zoom. . This month it’s a special Lunar New Year-themed virtual tour where you’ll not only learn the history of Chinatown and explore many of its hidden alleyways, but you’ll also discover a virtual neighborhood filled with dragons, lanterns, parade floats, and other Chinese New Year surprises.
