Lower East Side With a rich history of nineteenth century European immigration, the Lower East Side maintains classic New York vibes alongside long-time residents and new creative pioneers that emanate downtown charm like no other. Vintage delis, factories, and restaurants reside next to some of the most exciting dining, entertainment and nightlife scenes in all of Manhattan. The neighborhood attracts chic and eclectic people that like to lounge about in the afternoons but get wild till dawn. LES is dotted with gorgeous boutiques and variety stores for all knick-knack needs. Contemporary pop-up galleries cater to the local artists and musicians rock out or rap up in an abundance of live bars that never miss a beat on the latest. For energetic people to refuel, LES harbors some of the most famous restaurants for every culinary desire. The eats are so good, some spots like Dirty French or Ivan Ramen attract lines around the block so get there early! Winding down is easy along the East River waterfront that serves as a quiet walkway, bikepath, or fishing pier with a picturesque background of the Williamsburg Bridge. Residents can escape in more affordable pre-war walk-ups or the rare luxury high-rises that have gotten increasingly more popular and pricey. The lively but homey Lower East Side neighborhood serves a vibrant and welcoming home to many of New York’s finest residents who just like to have a good time.
