The Lower East Side’s boundaries — east from the Bowery to the East River Park and bounded by Houston street to the north — seem to be the only non-changing aspect of this booming neighborhood. While decades ago, the area was populated mostly with working-class families and up-and-coming young New Yorkers, it's becoming increasingly common to see NYC's rich, famous, and powerful choosing to call this neighborhood home.
Today, luxury apartments are rising, and new restaurants and nightspots seem to be opening daily. Trendy glass buildings are flanked by Pre-war tenements, allowing for a contrast that only adds to the area’s unique and diverse identity. The Lower East Side’s restaurants and bars — old and new — have attracted countless visitors, adding to an active nightlife. The LES combines history and vibrancy to create a homey yet eclectic neighborhood vibe.
