Well, it used to not be that way. Unfortunately, generations of people have simply moved out to the avenues or burbs so there simply is not enough business and/or foot traffic to justify keeping places open at night. With the influx of young non Asians to the area, perhaps there could be a rebirth of the area. The planned for Chinatown subway station could be the spark that starts that rebirth.
