American Changle? What, was this named by Dr Steve Brule??

Changle (two syllables; "-le" = "lea" in "learn") is a district of Fuzhou City where lots of Fuzhounese New Yorkers originate from. Our Chinatowns have at least a few associations named after a common hometown, partially because it's easier to network/socialize/get support among people who share the same native dialect

Spacing is inconsistent in English on Chinese names. Chang Le is a place in China. For example Hong Kong has space, while Beijing doesn't, hence inconsistent
