Alley 弄堂 lòngtáng or 巷 xiàng

When you look down this little alley sandwiched between storefronts you can catch a glimpse of people going about their daily activities - cooking, eating, sweeping, washing dishes, washing clothes, hanging clothes up to dry. These little homes and alleys will most likely all disappear someday and be replaced by modern high-rises.
