The Friendship Arch is an ornate paifang, a gate or archway used to divide regions of a city. Though many North American Chinatowns have these arches, Philadelphia's version is considered to be more elaborate than most.

The decorative arch was built in 1984 as a joint project between Philadelphia and its Chinese sister city, Tianjin.
