Lower East Side

Lower East Side

Once upon a time, this was a poor area with lots of immigrants, but today it is totally different. Still a bit edgy but with a lovely local atmosphere and one of the better areas for an exciting night out. Trendy bars, music clubs, galleries and indie stores border the narrow streets. You can find lots of interesting and unique items here.

To get an exciting insight into how the immigrants who came here in the 1800s and 1900s lived, visit the fine Tenement Museum. It’s an entire house with apartments decorated from that time and you get a very authentic feeling of how they lived.
You can only visit the museum via their guided tours so make sure to book in advance. Next to the house is a well-stocked museum shop. The museum also has interesting guided walks in the area.

Staying in the Lower East Side ensures a less touristic feel and there are several good hotels to choose between and popular restaurants.
