Below Canal Street

 Man hair cut, Chinatown barber.

My question was, what was the money for that was supposed to be dropped in this mail slot? Lispenard Street, Tribeca.

 Walking around in lower Chinatown one can see that is hasn't been gentrified yet, which is good. Still has the open markets and very few non-Asian people walking about. I can't say I felt welcome. Most refuse to speak English when asked a question. 

 There are very few of these old alleys left downtown, which is sad. I like that gritty old feel to them. Dark, dirty, the ever present stench of pee and waste.
