22 August 2007, Doyers is a small street.

At just a block long, Doyers Street begins at Pell, makes a 90 degree turn, then meanders the rest of the way down into Chatham Square and the Bowery.

This street was once called the "Bloody angle" by the tabloids supposedly because of a few tong wars that happened here in the early 20th century.

Today, the local post office is located here along with a few restaurants, and a large number of barbershops, and hair salons.

21 January 2007. Remnants of old Chinatown. A hidden tunnel--now a shopping arcade--lies behind one of these doors. A network of tunnels once connected an old Opera house on Doyers Street to an actor's residence on the Bowery, and was reputedly used as a escape route by Tong soldiers during a street battle in the early 1900s. see map.
