Doyers Street. Chinatown, New York City.
At only around 200 feet long, Doyers Street runs from Pell Street to Chatham Square.
In the early 20th century the curve in the street was known as “the Bloody Angle” because of a plethora of violent acts carried out by Chinatown gangs. The expression ‘hatchet man’ is said to have come from this era and these violent acts which often included hatchets.
