Despite its low-rise nature, the Lower East Side has been one of the world’s densest areas in terms of population. For more than a century and a half it was one of the city’s poorest areas where new immigrants started at the bottom. Nowadays it is a melting pot of art, culture and culinary magic whose creativity often inspires the rest of the City. The Lower East Side has a charm that it gets from the cramped coffee shops, rusty fire escapes, and gritty alleyways. The apartments in the area consist mainly of walk-up buildings and co-ops located close to the East River. With lots of new conversions and turnover of old rent-controlled spaces, the Lower East Side has some of the best deals in Manhattan.
