This part of lower Manhattan has gone through a big transition to a gentrified present, full of cool restaurants and bars, and more expensive apartments. But still a lot of traditional low income housing, so the old mix of immigrants is still present. A little...More

When I lived in Manhattan this is where I lived. I love going back to visit. It's such an interesting and vibrant part of the city. If you have time make sure to find your way to the Lower East side of Manhattan.

Lower East Side is hip, trendy, and is near Little Italy, Chinatown. But what I loved in this part of Manhattan are the murals on the buildings. This place has numerous paintings, such as Audrey Hepburn, the Statue of Libery, and other great art. I...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up

the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
