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.

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.

Très bien situé à 3mins à pied du métro Grand St (Ligne directe pour midtown et Brooklyn). A 5 mins de Little Italy et tous ses restaurants. Idéal pour 4!! (deux grands lits doubles) Cependant si vous avez l'intention de dormir dans le canapé convertible, il est préférable de trouver une autre solution car il est très inconfortable. Et le chauffage fait du bruit mais une fois qu'il est bien réglé, on y prête plus attention.

There seemed to be an issue with the heating but Nicole sorted this and was very pleasant and helpful. There was some noise (music) but this didn't really disturb us - if you want a quiet and relaxing vacation don't go to New York, however if you want to experience a vibrant and exciting city this is the one. The location was great near Soho, Chinatown and Little Italy but also handy for the subway to to get about. We had an amazing trip and created some wonderful memories.
