In the late 1880s, Wong turned himself into an ambassador of New York Chinatown society, guiding outsiders to this unique Chinese community. In an attempt to do good for himself and the Chinese community, Wong intended to establish close ties with people in high places. Through his writings and public speeches, he managed to equip the Americans with knowledge about the features of Chinatown in New York.
