"One way street through the heart of Chinatown"

9th Street is located in downtown Oakland. Ignore basically the beginning where 9th begins at Martin Luther King Jr Way. Because that area is pretty ghetto and a slew of low income people live over there.

For the most part, Oakland areas are seperated by good parts and bad parts. The bad parts outnumber the good parts. And chinatown is a good area surrounded by shady neighborhoods.

East of Broadway, 9th goes right through chinatown. And I would classify this street, as the street to go buy chinese groceries. This street is filled with stores with food ingredients. Go here for them.
Not only are there groceries here, you can buy baked goods, tea, and pearl drinks along this street.

9th street ends at the Lake Merritt BART station and Laney College. So, if you needed a ride to
Laney College, this would be the stop to get off at.

Oakland chinatown is full of one way streets, so drive precisely.
Parking is also a pain, and finding side street parking is nearly impossible along here.
Use the underground parking lots to save time and a headache for parking.

Trucks and cars often stop in the middle of the road to drop off goods to the stores
halting traffic. So if someone is on the road stopped, its best to drive around them.
