New York:

Do you know where this street is located – perhaps not where you’d expect?

Is it in the United States of America?

Yes in Chinatown, New York City
 
Home to a dense population of Asian immigrants, Manhattan’s Chinatown is one of NYC’s most evocative neighbourhoods and is also one of the oldest Chinese ethnic enclaves. It is one of nine Chinatown neighbourhoods in New York City, as well as one of twelve in the New York metropolitan area, which contains the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia.
 
Walking its busy, narrow streets (city tour of New York) reveals surprise after surprise: Chatham Square’s statue of Lin Zexu, a Qing dynasty official who led the fight against Britain’s illegal importation of opium; the odd pagoda-style roof and Buddhist temple; and atmospheric Doyers Street, with its basement bars and a speakeasy among them.
Come hungry and work your way through the many dim sum palaces, dumpling dens and inexpensive noodle joints.
 
Vibrant Chinatown is a densely populated neighbourhood that draws foodies and tourists to its many Chinese and Southeast Asian restaurants for dumplings, pork buns and hand-pulled noodles.
 
The busy sidewalks are packed with souvenir stores, bubble tea shops, and markets selling everything from fresh and dried fish to herbs and spices. Locals hang out in leafy Columbus Park for Tai Chi, chess and mahjong.
