Throwback Thursday " Doyers Street"

This photo from 1901, so many details on Doyers Street, Chinatown. A wholesome neighborhood where milk can be purchased by the glass. The street owes its name to Hendrik Doyer, an 18th-century Dutch immigrant who bought the property facing the Bowery in 1791 and operated a distillery where the post office is now sited and the Plough and Harrow tavern near the corner with Bowery. This is where you will find the famous Nom Wah Tea Parlor opened at 13 Doyers Street in 1927, and is still in operation. Check out my tour with Ahoy New York Tours to see this street now and how much or little it has changed! 

Happy March 1st everyone! Spring is around the corner!
