"Tiny run"

There are some lovely old brick buildings on Catherine right at Broadway. One of them is a gorgeous building from the early 19th century that should be for residential use but is actually a commercial building. The building directly across Catherine is a newer apartment building that looks like it should be commercial. I may have to go talk to them about that.
But, that's about it as far as excitement goes for this little one block of street / lane. Those buildings take up pretty much the entire block on either side so there's not much else to do unless you're a government employee (the pretty building) or a resident in the bigger one. It's not a bad little street to live on and it's definitely quieter than other blocks in this neighborhood. There's just really not much going on.
  • Pretty buildings
  • Only one block / two buildings

"More than just great food"

You know when you head to China Town it is likely you will be able to get a great meal or two but Catherine Lane has the edge over some of its rivals in China Town due to the other range of products you can find here. If you are travelling and want to find a great gift for someone back home, Catherine Lane is ideal for finding a bag or a great nick knack for them.

"Good food, shopping and fake purses!"

This street is always busy with people shopping. This street is located in the heart of Chinatown and the street is full of Chinese culture. There are many Chinese restaurants to choose from on this street. This street is also full of people trying to sell you a $5 fake Gucci purse. A UPS store, Sovereign Bank and a few Tailor shops are right on this street.
