- New Developments
The Lower East Side is located north of Houston and south of Division Street, between the East River and Bowery. Its richest legacy is the influx of immigrants that settled in the area during the first half of the 20th century and the mark these groups left on the neighborhood.
After years of neglect, the neighborhood has made a complete turnaround aided by investment and a renewed interest in the "downtown" lifestyle. Older buildings have been renovated and new ones have risen seemingly overnight. Pre-war walk-ups can now be found next to full-service luxury buildings and sleek, modern condominiums, high-end rentals and hotel towers. This cleaner, safer Lower East Side boasts a vibrant and diverse nightlife, with limitless options from hip bars to cabaret theaters and Indie rock venues, but it still retains a friendly downtown community atmosphere.
Apartment prices are somewhat cheaper here than in the neighboring East Village, but there are few subway stops—the F and J, M, Z, G lines stop along First Avenue and Delancey Street, respectively—in the area. The neighborhood's landmarks reflect its heritage: Eldridge Street Synagogue, the Louis Abrons Arts for Living Center and the Lower East Side Tenement Museum as well as the delightful Katz’s deli, Yonah Shimmel Knish and Russ and Daughters food shops bring a taste of old New York to the hip fashion boutiques and restaurants that mark the area's recent metamorphosis.
