The Wujin Century Building at 291 Fumin Lu near Changle Road in Shanghai is home to a bunch of Western restaurants popular with foreign expats in Shanghai, and in the late evening hours, this seedy corner attracts drug dealers, blackmarket DVD vendors, and prostitutes.

View this landmark on our interactive map and listen to stories in our year-long Marketplace series examining China’s changing economy, The Street of Eternal Happiness.
