Ross AlleyAlleyways in Chinatown were created during the early settlement of Chinese in the late 1870's. During that period, the rapidly-growing community was restricted by anti-Chinese sentiment to a six block area behind the back streets of the Barbary Coast. To maximize space within the confines of its boundary, the community created a maze of secondary streets and pedestrian walkways.
