The community is bounded by Hastings Street, Clark Drive, Great Northern Way, and Main Street.
Regarded as Vancouver's first neighbourhood, Strathcona's initial settlement grew from close proximity to Hastings Mil on Burrard Inletl.

The area has always attracted recent immigrants, who first came to the area before moving on.

Neighbourhood residents, in the 1950s, successfully fought a redevelopment scheme that included public housing and a highway.

Local festivals include:
· Chinatown Festival - Aug. 4, 2007
· Vancouver Asian Film Festival - Nov. 1-4, 2007
