The Lower East Side, LES, is the go-to spot for live music, art galleries and curated shops alike. The area has become a hot spot among young locals due to its affordable rent, accessibility to downtown neighborhoods and desirable nightlife. However, it’s also known for the famous Jewish delis, Katz's Delicatessen and Russ & Daughters, which attracts all crowds. This neighborhood is sure to keep you busy from dusk till dawn.
Although LES may be referred to as radical New York, it’s also home to various museums and galleries both modern and historic. There is an array of sought-after restaurants and nicely curated markets you’ll want to discover. Between the unique pre-war buildings, there are flourishing parks and local schools which tie in a diverse, welcoming feel to this eclectic neighborhood.View all Lower East Side spaces
I own a shop here in LES, Cast, we sell NY made leather jackets and screen print onto shirts.
I love that theres so much within walking distance, you're always stumbling upon a new art gallery or cafe.
