Wonderful street art all over the place - some great pieces. Small, nice clothes stores, restaurants and bars. This part of the City reminds me of SOHO in the early 80s.

The Lower East Side is certainly safe. It's bustling now, with plenty of restaurants, bakeries, and so forth. Tompkins Square Park is no longer Drug Dealers' Heaven. There are little mini-parks here and there, and some... More
