Little Saigon: Arlington's Vietnamese Community

For about 10 years following the fall of Saigon in April 1975, Arlington, Virginia, became a destination for Vietnamese immigrants fleeing communist rule. Attracted by the proximity to the nation's capital and the Pentagon, thousands of Vietnamese settled in the area and many opened shops and restaurants. Then, almost as quickly as it had developed, "Little Saigon," faded away.
