    With cars, you can at least tell the difference.

    That would be cool.

    but I think Fremont and San Jose has better Asian spots.

    Imagine non stop kung foo fighting in the streets and people speaking but their words do not match their lips. Imagine the Japanese putting up signs saying "no chinese"

    It should be up to the residents of that area.

    Doomberg tried to turn NYC chinatown into pedestrian only, or at least he seemed like he wanted to. He put in bike lanes everywhere, increased parking fees, shorten the times, and put up no parking signs in many places. He also decreased the lanes on lots of major streets to make room for pedestrian space.

    I dont know if DeBlasio will continue the trend.

    And pedestrian only does not equate to being better. Cars have its advantages too.

    Ironically, the Chinese In LA don't really live in Chinatown, and the best Chinese food isn't there, either. It's all about the San Gabriel Valley.
