Abstract/Description
In this clip Say Brother researcher Eileen Yang speaks with Jim Yee of Quincy Community Council about his perspective on the pending redevelopment around Boston's Chinatown neighborhood. Yee believes the development will have a significant negative impact on the community, as well as creating dangerous traffic congestion in the area. Overall the program focuses on recent physical developments occurring within and around Boston's Chinatown neighborhood, namely the construction of the Tufts-New England Medical Center, Lafayette Place, and Park Plaza. Say Brother researcher Eileen Yang speaks with Jane Leung (of the Boston Chinese YES), Peter Chan (manager, Little City Hall), May Ling Tong (of the Chinese Economic Development Council), Alice Boelter (of the Boston Redevelopment Authority), Jim Yee (of Quincy Community Council), and Thomas Murnane (Vice-President, Tufts University) about their perspectives on the pending construction, how it will affect the growth of Chinatown, and whether or not it will negatively impact the community. All interviews shot on location. Considered a one-hour documentary special. Produced by Eileen Yang. Directed by George Rivera.
