What to Expect
Guests should expect a comfortable stay in one of New York's hippest neighborhoods. With boutique shopping,

By day, the winding streets are full of gritty, successful artists and trendy shoppers alike checking out the offerings at the many artisanal restaurants, vegan bakeries, and delis or browsing for deals at the numerous vintage stores on Orchard and Ludlow.

But at night, just a few blocks away from the apartment (far enough that you will still sleep quietly at night), some of the hippest and most fun bars in Manhattan spring to life in the Lower East Side. From the Bowery to the East River between Houston and Canal Streets, nearly door-to-door watering holes constitute what could be deemed NYC's late-night playground. A little gritty and very spirited, the Lower East Side plays host to imbibers of various types—including been-there-done-that locals, plaid-loving hipsters, ready-to-party business types and visiting glamazons.

Rivaling the Manhattan 'hood's prevalence of alcohol outposts is its musical ubiquity. The LES abounds with concert venues that double as bars. The Delancey, The Mercury Lounge and Rockwood Music Hall welcome a mix of seasoned rockers and up-and-comers; Arlene's Grocery maintains an audacious downtown vibe; and Pianos, The Living Room and Cake Shop—which are lined up three in a row—keep it rowdy on Ludlow Street. Drawing crowds of edgy punks and rocker-chic girls to the myriad venues crammed into a five-block radius, where partiers might witness the next White Stripes or hottest international DJ.

The Lower East Side is home to an assortment of restaurants that provide a prismatic view of its immigrant past and more sanitized present. The neighborhood is one of the city's uniformly best eating destinations.

The neighborhood has become home to numerous contemporary art galleries. One of the very first was ABC No Rio begun by a group of Colab no wave artists (some living near the apartment), ABC No Rio opened an outsider gallery space that invited community participation and encouraged the widespread production of art. The product of this open, expansive approach to art was a space for creating new works that did not have links to the art market place and that were able to explore new artistic possibilities.

The neighborhood is also home to several graffiti artists such as Chico.

In December 2007, the New Museum relocated to a brand-new, critically acclaimed building on the Bowery at Prince. A growing number of galleries are opening in the Bowery neighborhood to be in close proximity to the museum.

The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, which opened in 2012, exhibits photography featuring the neighborhood in addition to chronicling its history of activism.

The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is also a few blocks away and features a five-story brick tenement building that was home to an estimated 7,000 people, from over 20 nations, between 1863 and 1935. This building, located at 97 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City, is a National Historic Site. The museum, which includes a visitors' center down the block, promotes tolerance and historical perspective on the immigrant experience.

The Lower East Side is the home to many private parks, such as La Plaza Cultural and a 4 minute walk to the East River Park which is beautiful for jogging.

The Lower East Side of New York City has a rich history. Prior to the American Revolution, a farm owned by James Delancey was located in the present day area of the LES. Today Delancey is remembered in the street name, as are the orchards on his farm with Orchard Street.

Upon arrival to the United States, many immigrants were directed to head towards the Lower East Side. The Lower East Side during its early development had a large German population, and at one time was known as Little Germany (Keindeutschland). The Irish were also early settlers to the area. The area is also known for is ties to Jewish culture, and has also welcomed Italians, Poles, Ukrainians, and other ethnic groups.

Once characterized by tenements and pushcarts, Orchard Street gained its flavor more than 200 years ago, as families squeezed into cramped buildings that filled lower Manhattan. Industrious immigrants became the Lower East Side’s first business owners. Selling their wares from potato sacks to thousands of local shoppers, successful business entrepreneurs from around the world soon expanded their inventory and bought pushcarts – and eventually storefronts – to transform Orchard Street into one of the busiest commercial districts in the world, and the neighborhood into a cultural mecca.

Over a century after hardworking immigrant families first crowded the tenements of Orchard Street, visitors from around the world are rediscovering the historic neighborhood and finding new surprises – all the while absorbing the amazing history which characterizes the area.Come explore the historic Lower East Side. Like thousands of immigrants before you, you may never want to leave!
