What to Know Before Moving to Lower East Side

Free-spirited and dynamic, the Lower East Side is also affordable, mellow (during the day), and exciting (especially at night). Let’s get to know this popular NYC enclave better!

Neighborhood Attractions

Three words define this vibrant neighborhood’s attractions: entertainment, nightlife, and dining. Relatively quiet during the waking hours, the Lower East Side comes alive at night. From vibey restaurants to loud music venues to rowdy bars, there’s never a dull moment. The club scene is also a thriving aspect of the neighborhood. Into shopping? There are so many eclectic stores, thrift shops, and boutiques, offering just the right amount of artistic, unique, and fun exploration for that new outfit or living room furnishings. Love art? The arts scene is another big draw, and you’ll find an assortment of funky and contemporary art galleries dotting the LES area. LES also boasts a couple of interesting museums – the Tenement Museum and the Museum at Elridge Street – and has a unique underground green space, called the Lowline.

Walkscore Info

The Lower East Side is bursting with vibe, and the best way to enjoy it is by foot. Fortunately, it also happens to be one of the most walkable neighborhoods in all of NYC. From culinary curiosities to colorful nightlife escapades, there’s something fun within convenient walking distance. And if you’re more of a biker, then you’re in the right place as well! This is definitely a bicycle-friendly community, so you’ll definitely want to bring your favorite ride. As for public transportation, more awesome news – LES rates high in this category, too. Offering approximately seven bus lines and three subway lines, public transit is world-class here.

Predominantly made up of pre-war buildings, there have been more luxury high-rise offerings over the past decade or so. In recent years, old surroundings have experienced a major makeover. Many apartments have been (and still are being) renovated, offering everything from a nice refresher to full-on luxury reimagination. From rooftop apartments with views of the Williamsburg Bridge to glitzy condos, housing is both relatively cheap and attractive.

People And Culture

Though the neighborhood is known for its nightlife, the Lower East Side has a strong sense of community. Originally a magnet for immigrants, as well as the NYC hub for the Jewish community (Russ & Daughters is the neighborhood go-to for bagels and lox), LES is no stranger to diversity. Walking around, you get a sense of the individuality of its residents – colorful murals here, unique home touches there – but there’s also a feeling of how this diverse enclave is connected. You’ll find folks from all backgrounds and walks of life here. What unifies them is expression, whether it’s through art, clothing, music, learning, etc., leading to one of the most unique communities you’ll find in the City that Never Sleeps.

Cost of Living

If you’re coming from outside of NYC, you might be shocked by the overall cost of living in one of the most amazing cities in the world. But if you’re relocating from another Manhattan neighborhood, you’ll definitely appreciate the housing deals you can still find in LES. This continues to attract young people, from ambitious professionals to college students to aspiring artists. Rent is particularly cheap here, especially compared to many other parts of the city. And if you’re in the market to buy, your money can go a lot further here. Nonetheless, an overwhelming majority of residents rent their places here, enjoying the lower cost of rentals.
