Doyers Street, Chinatown, New York City on Flickr.Doyers Street is, as shown on Google Maps, an unusually-shaped street, here shown as it makes its sharp turn between Chatham Square and Pell Street. Apparently it was known as the “Bloody Angle” on account of the frequent wars between Chinese organized crime groups in the neighbourhood. 
The Nom Wan Tea Parlor visible in the left of the photo is a famous dim sum restaurant; Indonesian/Malaysian-Chinese Sanur, where my host Alexander took me, would be found at the far end of the street to right.
For more photos, see this excellent collection of contemporary and historical photos.
