The Lower East Side is characterized by gorgeous scenery and fantastic amenities. This is the neighborhood to be in if you want the excitement of downtown close to home, without being right in your backyard. However, that’s not to say that the neighborhood itself doesn’t have some action going on. Brady Street is a popular thoroughfare for unique restaurants, bars, and nightlife and an eclectic collection of shops. Another popular street in the area is North Avenue, which contains many hoppin’ bars, popular restaurants, and hip entertainment venues. This makes this a fantastic neighborhood for young professionals and college students.
