"Vibrant Street on the fringe of Oakland Chinatown"
Harrison street is on the southern fringe of Oakland's Chinatown. It's not the cleanest street, and it's not the quietest street. But it does border the Lincoln street recreational park. There are some basketball courts there if you are interested in watching some competitive street ball. There is also a playground with a jungle gym shaped like a dragon boat, most excellent for toddlers. Parking is sparce, and walking alone at night time is not recommended.
