Doyers Street, Chinatown NYC Doyers Street

Off Mott Street, running between Pell Street and Chatham Square, this unusual street features a 90-degree turn.  Why?  It was once the driveway of brewer Heinreich Doyer's home.

In early Chinatown, Doyer Street was the center of commercial life.  The building that housed a 400 seat theater where Cantonese opera was performed is still there. Remnants of the era include one of Chinatown's first dim sum restaurants, and lots of barber shops.
