Top 20 Lower East Side, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments

This once down-trodden corner of Manhattan is now one of its most vibrant, stuffed with super-hip bars, vintage fashion shops and bustling, inventive restaurants. Architecturally it's a real mix and it can feel radically different from one block to the next - trendy glass buildings are flanked by pre-war tenements, allowing for a contrast that only adds to the area’s unique and diverse identity. The Tenement Museum on Orchard Street is well worth checking out and gives a fascinating insight into the 19th century immigrants' experience of living in this part of town. For a completely different kind of museum experience, pay a visit to the fabulous and world-class New Museum, which showcases the very best in cutting-edge contemporary art. Even though it's changed a great deal, it is still one of the last truly authentic-feeling, old NYC neighbourhoods in Manhattan - you still see residents and shop owners sitting in chairs on the sidewalk watching the world go by.
