About Lower East Side
The melting pot gets its flavor from the Lower East Side, where Kosher-salted delis meet spicy Puerto Rican bodegas on Delancey Street. Eldridge Street echoes with klezmer and Chinese opera at the annual Egg Cream & Egg Roll Festival each June. Over on Bowery St, the New Museum of Contemporary Museum of Art induces double takes and the Bowery Ballroom will keep you up late. For New Yorkers who wax nostalgic about Manhattan before gentrification of the Bowery, the Lower East Side Tenement Museum is an important reality check. Once you've seen the cramped living conditions that greeted arrivals fresh off the proverbial boat from Ellis Island, condos don't seem like such a bad alternative. Boutique hotels along Rivington and a high density of restaurants make the East Village a far more attractive landing spot for visitors today.
