Known for its restaurants and Oriental markets, Chinatown residents seem to consider themselves a self-contained community and neither ask for nor feel that they require assistance from "outsiders". The district's main street could be accessed through an ornate golden gateway on Gate Street.
Chinatown is connected to Gotham County via the Vincefinkel Bridge, stretching over the Gotham River to the west.
Like the Old Gotham district and southern portion of the Diamond District, Gotham City's Chinatown has been completely encapsulated by Brainiac's forcefields. Brainiac's forces now patrol the district's now barren streets.
