Find out more about East Village

The East Village and Lower East Side, neighboring districts sitting on the East River of Manhattan, have long been synonymous with America’s counterculture. These historic areas are renowned as the birthplace of many social and artistic movements, from the beatnik and hippy cultures to Andy Warhol’s pop art and punk rock. Arguably the trendiest and edgiest districts of New York, these two street-smart neighborhoods are also home to thriving alternative retail and food scenes, as well as great bars and nightlife.

Hotels in the East Village-Lower East Side

For such a trendy area, it comes as no surprise that travelers can choose from an eclectic range of East Village boutique hotels. A prime example is The Bowery Hotel, a chic hotel with plush, old-world décor and floor-to-ceiling windows. You can also find plenty of 4-star hotels in the East Village and Lower East Side area, such as Wyndham Garden Chinatown, which has two bars and a gorgeous lounge. If you’re counting your pennies, check out discount hotels on the Lower East Side like the Holiday Inn NYC-Lower East Side, a more affordable option that offers great value to travelers on a budget.

Things to see in the East Village-Lower East Side

The luxury hotels in the East Village-Lower East Side area are juxtaposed with its less illustrious past as showcased at the Tenement Museum. One of New York’s most talked-about museums, here you have the chance to view restored tenement apartments and get a glimpse into the daily lives of past immigrants to New York. For a taste of the artistic flair so present in New York’s most creative neighborhoods, visit the New Museum of Contemporary Art, a 7-story gallery showcasing the best art and media of up-and-coming artists. For a relaxing stroll, why not step outside to the East River Park? Offering inspiring views of Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, the park is also home to an amphitheater that often serves as a concert venue. Another great public space is Tompkins Square Park—a well-manicured park featuring elm tree-lined walkways, and a prime spot for people watching.

Good for couples

This is an unbeatable neighborhood for travelers who want an affordable, alternative base for a couples’ getaway. After booking into one of the charmingly romantic hotels on the Lower East Side, couples can explore the many restaurants in the area serving up delectable down-to-earth New York cuisine, from hole-in-the-wall pastrami joints like Katz’s Delicatessen to renowned fish purveyors Russ & Daughters. Alternatively, reserve a table at a more upmarket fine dining restaurant to really push the boat out. Continue your NYC date night in one of the buzzing eclectic bars or music venues littering the neighborhoods’ alleyways. Parks in the area are perfect for a romantic stroll in the morning light or at dusk.

How to get to the East Village-Lower East Side

Visitors arriving into Newark and JFK Airports should catch the convenient AirTrain, which will take you to the New York subway system, also accessible from LaGuardia on the Q70 bus. There are 7 subway stations within the East Village and Lower East Side districts, meaning you can easily travel around the neighborhoods themselves and also venture on into other districts. To really soak up the sophisticated swagger and urbane sophistication of the Lower East Side and East Village, however, hit the sidewalk and explore on foot.
