Best Chinatown Street (2008)

Doyers Street

"The Bloody Angle," as DOYERS STREET was referred to back in the days when it was a sketchy saloonville and Asa Yoelson (Al Jolson) and Izzy Baline (Irving Berlin) were singing waiters at Mike Callahan's Dance Saloon, was supposedly the first seed of Chinatown. What's great is that the modern urban template has yet to really snuff out the placid vibe of this Bowery bayou. The dusty Ting's Gift Shop and the lazy Nom Wah Tea Parlor are both good examples of the Doyers time zone.
