Lower east side neighborhood

I like to divide my visits to New York by zones or neighborhoods. If not, it's a mess. I think it's a great way to structure the content of a few days in the Big Apple, without missing anything along the way. On my last trip I stayed in the Lower East Side, in Lower Manhattan, which is a fashionable area, on the streets bordering Lower Manhattan and the East Village. Its most interesting parts are Chinatown (what to say), Little Italy (viva la mafia), Columbus Park Park (where they meet the Chinese to play chess and enjoy their social life), synagogues (the Jewish past is very present today) and independent shops (candy paradise). All can be explored on foot. I really liked the area and undoubtedly would choose it as a base. It has a full range of restaurants and, in the background, you can see the Empire State Building.

Lower east side

If New York is world famous for its skyline and its towering skyscrapers hundreds, the city is also full of small neighborhoods completely different, boasting a clean history and a personality that can immerse themselves in the history and culture of New York, including the time of the great waves of immigration ... The Lower East Side, for example, is a small neighborhood located south of Manhattan and welcomed Jewish immigrants in particular, and especially those in Eastern Europe. One can still see the scars of this population, with many Yiddish inscriptions on the walls, hundreds of synagogues, etc.. A pretty historic discovery.

Si New York est mondialement connue pour sa skyline et ses immenses gratte-ciels par centaines, la ville regorge également de petits quartiers complètement différents, bénéficiant d'une histoire et d'une personnalité propres, qui permettent de s'immerger dans l'histoire et la culture de New York, notamment du temps des grandes vagues d'immigration... Le Lower East Side, par exemple, est un petit quartier situé au sud Est de Manhattan et qui a accueilli les immigrés juifs notamment, et particulièrement ceux d'Europe de l'Est. On peut encore observer aujourd'hui les stigmates de cette population, avec de nombreuses inscriptions yiddish sur les murs, des synagogues par centaines, etc. Une jolie découverte historique.
