The Lower East Side, or LES, is known for its more affordable walk-ups, lively atmosphere and eclectic vibe. It’s a nightlife destination with its many bars, clubs, and music venues, and the party often continues late into the night (or early morning) and pours out into the packed streets. Plan to walk or take a cab into this neighborhood, as there aren’t many mass transit options that stop here. The LES also offers a vibrant art scene in its hundreds of gallery offerings. There are also a variety of guided tours available at the Tenement Museum, and delicious food hot spots like Russ and Daughters, Ivan Ramen, and Katz’s Delicatessen. Don’t miss a scenic walk down the path bordering the East River for stunning views of the water and Williamsburg bridge.Apartments Roommates
