Make a holiday apartment in the Lower East Side, Manhattan, your home away from home

Once a working class neighbourhood, New York City’s Lower East Side has now been gentrified and offers an excellent base for visitors to the city that never sleeps. As the name suggests, the Lower East Side is situated towards the lower end of Manhattan and on the east of the island. Its borders are usually considered to be East Houston Street, the Bowery, Canal Street and the East River. Holiday homes for rental in the Lower East Side are perfect for couples and families looking for a great Manhattan location.

As New York is the city that never sleeps you’ll always find there’s plenty to do on holiday in the Lower East Side! This is a popular Manhattan shopping district and was famously a great place to find bargains, though it’s now a great place to find designer boutiques and stylish little coffee shops. There are many tasty places to dine out close to your accommodation in the Lower East Side, from delis to restaurants, including the deli where a certain famous scene from When Harry Met Sally was filmed, Katz’s Deli!

Places to visit in the Lower East Side, Manhattan

This part of New York City has a few of its own attractions, but many visitors enjoy staying in accommodation in the Lower East Side because it’s easy to see the rest of Manhattan’s attractions from here. In the Lower East Side itself there is one attraction that may not sound interesting but is actually very popular. The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is situated within an old tenement building on Orchard Street and is a National Historic Site. The building stood empty for many years and now shows visitors how terrible living conditions were in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Holidaymakers staying in self catering accommodation in the Lower East Side can make use of Manhattan’s great subway system and visit many of the other popular city attractions such as the Empire State Building, the World Trade Center Site, Central Park, Times Square, and many more.

The weather in the Lower East Side, Manhattan

The Lower East Side, like the rest of Manhattan has a humid subtropical climate which means visitors will experience hot and humid summers, mild temperatures in the autumn and spring, and cool winters. Self catering accommodation in the Lower East Side is great to visit at any time of the year though, because attractions in the city are open year round.

Flights to the Lower East Side, Manhattan

Accommodation in the Lower East Side can be reached with ease from either one of New York City’s major international airports, La Guardia and JFK. JFK International Airport handles more flights from Europe with airlines such as Delta Air Lines, Aer Lingus, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, and American Airlines.

Really really great place!

5 of 5
If you are looking for a cool apartment in a great neighborhood with outdoor space this is the place! Especially the outdoor space-it is perfect. I am definitely coming back when the weather is better to see how cute it is with flowering plants. The Grey Dog is 2 doors down and is open from morning to late night with great food and drink with a vegetarian flare. Taxi cabs easily available by walking out the door. Only complaint was no microwave. I would definitely recommend the owner put a small microwave in 2nd kitchen on mini-fridge. It was great to have 2 bathrooms. I would also change the instructions for the lockbox. The whole box pulls down when you press down. We struggled with those directions thinking the key would pop out, It needs a little TLC but was super clean and comfortable, The neighborhood is awesome with a really great market/grocery store on the corner. I will be back!!!Thank you Maggie for checking in on us when we struggled with the key!
