Welcome to East Village | Lower East Side
A world where art, music, youth culture and literature have fused for decades and possibly the most distinct neighborhood in the city. The neighborhood many stars call home is constantly buzzing and continues to evolve with new skyline-defining projects underway. The formerly gritty streets of this area have been cleaned up to welcome chefs opening gourmet restaurants and trendy coffee bars. A melting pot of cultures has made this neighborhood a culinary delight, with legendary hot spots like Ivan Ramen and Kat’z Delicatessen there is here for everyone’s taste. Home to a high concentration of music venues like the iconic Webster Hall and Arlene’s Grocery there is plenty to see and do. Tompkins Square park is a popular destination for warm weather activities and also hosts festivals in the summer.
