New York's Chinatown and the tale of the Chinese in America

In this episode I follow the story of Chen Dongfan, a Chinese artist from Hangzhou who spent eight days painting a mural onto New York Chinatown's Doyers Street. It's part of an initiative led by New York City, that seeks to bring more foot traffic to an area once known as much for its gang warfare as for its theatre and dim sum restaurants, and close by to Ground Zero. But as I discover, Doyers Street, named for Hendrik Doyer, an 18th century Dutch immigrant, is also the backdrop for a number of historical Chinese figures, whose vision allowed others to achieve better lives of their own.
