About: Lower East Side
The Lower East Side is located south of Houston Street and bounded by the East River. The Lower East Side is defined by the immigrants that passed through the neighborhood during the 18th and 19th century. Tenement housing was built in the Lower East Side to house the incoming immigrants. Many of the furnished apartments are located in these tenements buildings which have been approved over the years. The Lower East Side Tenement Museum on Delancy Street gives a history of the neighborhood.
Little Italy and Chinatown are two examples of the strong cultural areas that still exist from the different waves of immigrants.
