Chinatown Gate

Chinatown Gate


San Francisco, California (CA), US
Gateway arch (Dragon Gate) on Grant Avenue at Bush Street in Chinatown, San Francisco, California. It is the only authentic Chinatown gate in North America. Unlike similar structures which usually stand on wooden pillars, this iconic symbol conforms to Chinese gateway standards using stone from base to top and green-tiled roofs in addition to wood as basic building materials.

The gateway was designed by Clayton Lee in 1970, and construction was completed in that same year.
