LES & East Village

1 Aug

The LES (thats New York for the Lower East Side)

is the area South of East Houston St. down to Manhattan Bridge
and East of the Bowery to the water.

This area is one of those places where you need to know where to go. It doesn’t always have the best spots and while cool hipsters spend there nights here, they don’t usually spend their days here.

You are more likely to walk around exploring all the wonderful things in the East Village and hitting the recommended spots of the LES.

The East Village areas run South of 14th St. to East Houston and from about 3rd ave. east to alphabet city.

Here are my top 10 eat.drink.shop .packable. picks for these areas.

#4. McSorleys Pub
This is the oldest pub! They didn’t even start allowing women in until the 70’s! Make sure to get there early as the more crowded it gets the less likely you would want to be there.
