This is the East Village & the Lower East Side chapter from Lonely Planet’s New York City guidebook.

If you’ve been dreaming of those quintessential New York City moments – graffiti on crimson brick, skyscrapers rising overhead, punks, grannies and financial-industry types walking side by side, cute cafes with rickety tables spilling out onto the sidewalks – then the East Village is your Holy Grail.

  • admire the off-white webbing of the boxy facade of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, then wander in to appreciate mind-bending iterations of art across myriad media
  • maps
  • witness the shockingly cramped conditions of early immigrants at the brilliantly curated Lower East Side Tenement Museum
  • transport
  • pass knickknack shops and sake bars on St Marks Place, then head to the neighboring streets for a quieter round of nibbling and boutique-ing.
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
