What are you going to do?

This walk takes you through two extremely different neighborhoods, which is typical of New York: Chinatown, which until a few decades ago was a dangerous area, and the neighborhood where the WTC stood, which now features the impressive 9/11 Memorial and Tribute Center.



Up until the 19th century, life in New York City was primarily concentrated in a small part of what is now Lower Manhattan. This historic area is rich with beautiful buildings dating back to some of the city’s earliest days, from the imposing Gregorian and Federal-style architecture around Wall Street to the apartment buildings and temples in Chinatown.

 

The Lower East Side is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. Some 200 years ago this area was flooded with immigrants, and today this has contributed to the multitude of cafés, restaurants, bars and music venues this part of town is known for. For example, check out The Leadbelly and The Fat Radish on this walk: two very different restaurants, both by the same owner, and with a typical Lower East Side-vibe. During the 1970s the neighborhood attracted creative and eccentric rebels, who gave rise to New York City as we now know it. Today the area is becoming increasingly more gentrified and many young people are attracted to the trendy bars, cafés, and boutiques. This is a part of New York that still goes against the grain, full of colorful, inspirational murals and street poets.

 

Finish your walk at Edith Machinist, a shopper's paradise for vintage lovers, then head to Schiller’s Liquor Bar for an exceptional glass of wine.
