繼最早的老華埠付之一炬之後，洛杉磯的 舊華埠位於今天的洛杉磯聯合火車站（ Union Station）。中國籍苦力在1850年左右落腳 後，令到這洛杉磯舊華埠在1800年的後期發 展成為一個繁盛之社區。在1931年，洛杉磯 聯合火車站（ Union Station）建設開始，舊 華埠被拆毀，華埠被迫要從舊址搬遷。經過 多年的努力和策劃，在大中華家族成員帶領 之下，發展了新的華埠。在1938年，新華埠 中心的中央廣場舉辦盛大的開幕典禮。時至 今天，這個華埠仍是全美唯一的一個私人擁 有和保持公眾使用的社區場地，在華埠還有 很多的物業，仍然被這個幫助開發新華埠的 大中華家族擁有。
洛杉磯新華埠是美國第一個被中美社群開 發的中美社區。今天，當年開路先鋒家族的 後裔繼續管理大中華家族，效勞於城市中的 中美社群，已經跨度百年歷史，這也是在洛 杉磯最長久的華人社團。在中央廣場，大中 華家族和其他社會團體，並肩贊助了很多免 費的社區營造活動，例如極受歡迎的華埠夏 夜、中秋節、華埠爆竹賽跑（ L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run）、中國新年慶祝活動等。 除了贊助上述的公眾活動之外，大中華家 族多年來還為低收入住客和年長居民服務。 在1950年左右，大中華家族建設了一間柏文 樓宇，給予僅能支付有限租金的年長人士居 住，至今仍在運作中。
中央廣場就是李小龍銅像的家，全美唯 一。在可以預見的歲月中，中央廣場變成了 華埠的聖像，全世界可以從電影、電視、社 群媒體和印刷媒體看到這位功夫巨星不朽的 身影。
Incorporated in 1938, the Los Angeles Chinatown Corporation (LACC) was formed with the objectives of fundraising, site acquisition, design, and construction for Los Angeles’ Chinatown. LACC is the original developer and current landlord of the Central Plaza, the hub of Chinatown as we know it today, and other notable landmarks, including Seven Caverns Wishing Well and the four historical Chinese gates.
The original Los Angeles Chinatown, located at what is now Union Station, was settled by Chinese laborers in the 1850s; it developed into a thriving community in the late 1800s. In 1931, the construction of Union Station began. The Chinese community in the Los Angeles area was forced to relocate from their original site. Years of eﬀort and planning on the part of the community members formed to the Los Angeles Chinatown Corporation to lead the development of “New Chinatown,” so called because the original Chinatown of the 1800s had been demolished. In 1938, Central Plaza, the heart of New Chinatown, was dedicated with a grand opening ceremony. Today, this Chinatown remains the only privately-owned and maintained public community space in the country, and many of the properties within it are still owned by the original Chinese families who helped establish New Chinatown.
New Chinatown was the frst Chinese American community in the United States developed by Chinese Americans. Today, the direct descendants of those pioneering families continue to manage LACC and serve the city’s Chinese American community; with a history that spans 100 years, it is also the longest-standing Chinese community association in Los Angeles. LACC works alongside other community groups to sponsor many free community enrichment events throughout the year, which are hosted at the Central Plaza: the popular Chinatown Summer Nights, the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, the Los Angeles Chinatown Firecracker Run, the Chinese New Year Festival, and more.
In addition to sponsoring events for the public, LACC has served low-income residents and senior citizens for decades. In the 1950s, the group constructed an apartment building to provide affordable housing to seniors, which it still operates today.
The Central Plaza is the home to the Bruce Lee Statue, the frst of its kind in the United States. During the last 50 years the Central Plaza has become the iconic Chinatown to the world as seen in the movies, television, social media and print.
In the 1940’s the Los Angeles Chinatown Corporation thought it was important that the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association fnd a new home and provided the land where it stands today. Current Officers President: Larry V Jung; Vice President: Anthony Quon; Treasurer: Jason Fujimoto;
