East Village & Lower East Side

" Formerly home to mainly artists, now a maze of tiny streets with lots of wonderful cafés and shops, just waiting to be discovered. "

Ingrid Schram, our local from time to momo New York

The East Village and Lower East Side were once filthy, overpopulated areas, but now they are among New York City's best loved neighborhoods. Foodies and adventurers come here to explore the back alleys, hoping to find a top-notch underground restaurant or speakeasy with amazing music.This is the place for nonconformists and anyone who likes to veer off the beaten path. A neighborhood where businesses are still run by authentic New Yorkers, and people come from far and wide to experience Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks' famous love scene at Katz’s Delicatessen.
