What all the iconic locations in ‘Home Alone 2: Lost in New York’ are like in real life.. After passing the diner, McCallister heads to Chinatown, where he stops at Quong Yuen Shing & Co. Unfortunately, the store closed in 2003.
Quong Yuen Shing & Co. on Mott Street opened in 1891 in the heart of Chinatown, according to The New York Times.
The store sold everything from salted duck eggs to medicinal herbs. According to “Home Alone 2” directors, it also sold firecrackers, which McCallister stuffs into his backpack as he exits the store.
In the mid-1980s, the store received a new name, 32 Mott Street General Store, and in 2003, it closed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.
While visitors can’t stop at this specific spot, they can explore Chinatown’s history and discover some delicious eats.
