East Broadway (Manhattan)

East Broadway (Manhattan)

Little Fuzhou (小福州, 紐約華埠), or Fujiantown, a prime destination status for immigrants from the Fujian Province of China, is a neighborhood in the Chinatown and Lower East Side areas of the borough of Manhattan in New York City in the United States. The term is now also being used to describe a similar neighborhood developing rapidly in the adjacent borough of Brooklyn. Manhattan's Little Fuzhou is centered around the street of East Broadway, which begins at Chatham Square (also known as Kimlau Square) and runs eastward under the Manhattan Bridge, continues past Seward Park and the eastern end of Canal Street, and ends at Grand Street. The neighborhood is named for the western portion of the street, which is primarily populated by mainland Chinese immigrants, (primarily Foochowese from Fuzhou, Fujian), while the smaller, eastern portion has traditionally been home to a large number of Jews, while now receiving Chinese immigration as well.

Famous quotes containing the words east and/or broadway:

    A puff of wind, a puff faint and tepid and laden with strange odours of blossoms, of aromatic wood, comes out the still night—the first sigh of the East on my face. That I can never forget. It was impalpable and enslaving, like a charm, like a whispered promise of mysterious delight.... The mysterious East faced me, perfumed like a flower, silent like death, dark like a grave.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    ... here hundreds sit and play Bingo; here the bright lights of Broadway burn through a sea haze; here Somebodies tumble over other Somebodies and over Nobodies as well.
    —For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
