    I live near/by the northern entrance of china town.

    When we say a car is running, we are normally referring to the engine: it means the engine is switched on (the engine is running).

    ... when cars are passing (in the street).

    - my friend told me " someone is waving at you". Is "waving at " a correct expression

    It is correct.

    I am not a teacher.
