Live like a local in the Lower East Side

Among Manhattan's oldest and most vibrantly diverse neighborhoods, the Lower East Side is truly a feast for the senses. Historically an epicenter of Jewish-American culture, it's home to architecturally eclectic synagogues and ever-bustling kosher delis serving packed-to-bursting pastrami sandwiches and sensational smoked salmon bagels. The district's art and music scenes are truly world-beating, with an abundance of cutting-edge galleries and colorful street art, and venues that have played host to everyone from Leonard Cohen to Lady Gaga. Within walking distance of your Lower East Side vacation rental, you'll also find a head-spinning wealth of bustling bars and hip boutiques.

Serious shopping in the Lower East Side

The Lower East Side offers discerning shoppers an alluring alternative to the cavernous department stores of 5th Avenue. Forward-thinking fashionistas will be thrilled by treasure-filled vintage emporiums and boutiques owned by up-and-coming local designers. You can lose many more hours browsing the district's indie bookshops and shabby chic homeware stores. Should you feel peckish, swing by an artisanal bakery for a decadent donut, or head to neighboring Chinatown for some lip-smacking spicy Szechuan noodles. After dark, check out some live music – with everything from raucous punk venues to glittering burlesque bars, the Lower East Side has all preferences covered.

The Lower East Side's spellbinding museums

You'll find an endless array of things to see and do within easy reach of your Lower East Side vacation rental. The Tenement Museum offers an immersive journey through local history. Between the 1860s and 1930s, this 5-storey building was home to an astonishing 7000 people from over 20 countries. Meticulously restored apartments, costumed interpreters and multimedia exhibits tell some of their stories. Culture aficionados should also set aside time for the New Museum, widely revered as New York's premier contemporary art museum. Its ever-rotating exhibition program is your best bet for discovering the superstars of the future.

Hazy summer sun in the Lower East Side

Lower East Side vacation rentals are in high demand at all times of year – this is, after all, the city that never sleeps. Early booking is advisable if you're planning a trip during the peak summer season of June to August. Days are long and often sunny, but humidity can make things a little uncomfortable, so be sure to pack cool clothes. Accommodation is also highly sought-after around the winter holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. While winters can be extremely cold, spring and fall offer milder temperatures and slightly thinner visitor crowds.

New York's natural wonders

While the Lower East Side is a decidedly urban destination, Manhattan's expansive parks make it a breeze to recharge the batteries whenever big city life seems overwhelming. Hudson River Park is the ideal spot for a morning run or sunset stroll, with its tranquil waterfront views and lush green lawns. And no visit to New York is complete without a wander through Central Park, the airway of the city. Its dense woodlands are home to wild cuddly creatures such as raccoons and gray squirrels, while birdwatchers should keep an eye out for black-and-white patterned loons and graceful egrets.
