What was once the world's largest Jewish community has now become one of the most eclectic in all of Manhattan. The Lower East Side is home to designers, writers, professionals, musicians and artists not to mention the myriad different ethnic groups that grace this neighborhood. Old-world shops sit side by side with funky, new boutiques and galleries that showcase the best of New York's avant-garde fashion scene. With many bargain stores, edgy new nightspots, ethnic restaurants and music venues, this neighborhood is truly for everyone. The Lower East Side is bounded by Houston Street, the East River, and FDR Drive. Over the past two decades, this neighborhood has undergone a major renaissance for the better. It is now much safer and cleaner, and its mixture of the old and the new makes it fascinating. Refurbished lofts and duplexes, as well as turn of the century walk-up buildings, are common. With the growth of the neighborhood, it is no surprise that prices have increased and more trendy shops and restaurants have emerged.
