Lower East Side

The Lower East Side has been redefined in recent years to include only the area below Houston, above Delancey (or Grand - as you prefer) and east of Bowery. (It should be noted that in the first half of the 20th century everything up to 14th street - including today's East Village was considered part of the Lower East Side). Traditionally, throughout the 20th century, the Lower East Side was populated by the successive waves of new immigrants - first Jews, then East Europeans, and finally, Latinos (who dubbed it "Loisaida"). In the 1990's, however, hordes of hipsters invaded and ultimately succeeded in gentrifying most of the neighborhood. Nowadays, the area west of Clinton street is considered "cool", despite its somewhat rundown look. Subways: Take the F,V to 2 AV or Delancey or the M to Essex
