The neighborhood

Lower East Side

The Lower East Side is New York City’s trendiest time capsule, a perfect blend of past and present. As one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, it’s infused with history and culture. The Tenement Museum is excellent for learning about Jewish heritage and immigrant roots. Today, this area is an eclectic hub for many artists and musicians. Step into the thriving art scene through contemporary galleries such as Bodega and 33 Orchard. Or bounce between live music and sophisticated cocktail bars. From an energetic nightlife to waves of culture, the Lower East Side has many stories to uncover.
