As one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, The Lower East Side has historically been fertile ground for new and spontaneous forms of artistic expression. The Sago Hotel furnishes this legendary backdrop with cool sophistication, making it the preferred starting point from which to explore Manhattans diverse and eclectic phenomena.
Rooms come in seven different categories at Sago Hotel, each with its own distinct appeal, size and level of comfort. the sago city view rooms offer the complete manhattan experience in ultra-modern comfort, including captivating city views. at 320 sq.ft. [approx. 30 sqm.], the sago deluxe city view is slightly bigger, and includes an artisanal daybed. upping the ante just a little bit further are the sago mini suites, superseded only by the grand living that the king studio and the king studio deluxe have to offer. mind you, the latter comes with a luxurious soaking tub.
The two suites on the sixth, seventh and eight floors are generous in space, and offer a separate, fully equipped kitchen along the way.

This family-run LES ”landmark” dating to 1914 is in a ”class by itself” thanks to the ”new generation” there that’s ”keeping up the quality” with ”drool-worthy displays” of ”legendary offerings”, notably sable and ”lox to dream of”, ”herring perfection”, ”top-quality” caviar and more, from bagels and babka to dried fruits and chocolate; it’s always a ”mad scene”, especially at holidays (”oy vey!”), but the counter folk are ”super helpful”, so ”take a number” – ”it’s worth the lines” and ”expensive” tab to ”order some of the best” with a side of ”history.”
The Tenement Museum preserves and interprets the history of immigration through the personal experiences of the generations of newcomers who settled in and built lives on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, America’s iconic immigrant neighborhood; forges emotional connections between visitors and immigrants past and present; and enhances appreciation for the profound role immigration has played and continues to play in shaping America’s evolving national identity.
In 1888, a small deli by the name of Iceland Brothers was established on Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side by the Iceland brothers. Katz’s Deli was moved across the street, to its present location, during the construction of the subway system. The vacant lot on Houston Street (pronounced ”House-ton” after a Dutch emigrant of the same name) was home to barrels of meat and pickles until the present storefront facade was added between 1946-49.
