Lower East Side Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Lower East Side has a mythic quality that is cherished by locals and tourists alike. Long known for its importance in Jewish American history, it has also been home base for gen- erations of Latino and Chinese families and institutions. (Puerto Rican residents coined its Spanglish nickname, “Loisaida.”)

Lacking the polish and glamour of Midtown, the quaint historical feel of City Hall, the cultural cool of the Upper West Side, or the moneyed elegance of Fifth Avenue, the Lower East Side has long held a reputation as a gritty place where people strive, where kids run the streets, where vendors and businesspeople hustle. It’s certainly more than that, of course, but it retains this essence in many ways."
