Neighborhood: Chinatown
Overview

From Chatham Square, Doyers St. runs up to Pell St. and it is here where some of the most brutal murders between rival gangs had taken place. Aptly named 'The Bloody Angle' because of its chaotic past, today there is nary a trace of violence or mayhem in this little alley. However, behind the barbershop facades and the post office that now stands here, there are still many underground passageways and tunnels to evade the law or at least entertain history buffs. In fact, the classic Nom Wah Tea Parlor at 13 Doyers has been here for more than 80 years and is a good choice to unwind with a cup of tea. For more contemporary libations, Apoth├ęke at 9 Doyers is a place to have a wonderfully crafted cocktail without the fear of rival Tong gangs fighting outside!
