1245 Maunakea is really no longer Chinatown...Maybe 60 years ago it was. That address is now ghetto district. Maybe he ran from a Chinatown location and ended up there?

You are correct. I remember when Chinatown was the happening place to be in the 1970's. That's where all the strip clubs used to be. It was where the prostitutes would walk the streets. The mahu prostitutes were to be found nearer to Aala Park. Gambling dens were upstairs. Nowadays, the police have cleared out the gambling dens, the strip clubs are on Kapiolani and Keeaumoku Streets, the prostitutes prowl Waikiki, old 2 story Chinatown brick buildings are being razed and new high-rise condos are being built. The Old Chinatown as we once knew it is now dead. But it will live on in Hawai'i nostalgia.
