Boston - South End & Chinatown (Chapter)
This is the South End & Chinatown chapter from Lonely Planet's Boston guidebook.
The Chinatown area teems with glitzy theaters, Chinese restaurants and the remnants of Boston's leather industry (now clubs and converted lofts). Nearby, the formerly rough-and-tumble South End has been reclaimed by artists and gays, who have created a vibrant dining and gallery scene.
