Welcome to East Village & Lower East Side
If you need a concise description of this neighborhood duo’s ethos, consider its two largest institutions, the New Museum and the Tenement Museum: both continually evolving and simultaneously marked by waves of immigrants. The East Village and the Lower East Side are two of the city's hottest 'hoods for cramming into low-lit lounges; clubs for live music and cheap eats luring students, bankers and scruffier types alike. Luxury high-rise condominiums and hip boutique hotels coexist within blocks of tenement-style buildings. They're inspiring, lively and the perfect place to feel young.
