Bowery, New York City

(3.4/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
The Bowery is a street and neighborhood in the southern portion of the New York City borough of Manhattan. The street runs from Chatham Square at Park Row, Worth Street, and Mott Street in the south to Cooper Square at 4th Street in the north, while the neighborhood's boundaries are roughly East 4th Street and the East Village to the north; Canal Street and Chinatown to the south; Allen Street and the Lower East Side to the east; and Little Italy to the west.In the 17th century, the road branched off Broadway north of Fort Amsterdam at the tip of Manhattan to the homestead of Peter Stuyvesant, Director-General of New Netherland. The street was known as Bowery Lane prior to 1807. "Bowery" is an anglicization of the Dutch bouwerij, derived from an antiquated Dutch word for "farm", as in the 17th century the area contained many large farms.

  • Manhattan's comparatively? In the South, new Museum, is an image of the tenement Museum and Russ & daughters. That saw ordinary life in New York, but I think it's pretty historic district, said that week I want.

  • Bowery district is located in the center of Manhattan, near to the famous Chinatown and Little Italy. Total walk interesting: a lot of cafes, shops, graffiti, but a lot of garbage and visitors. When looking for hotels in New York were the cheapest options, but the reviews they were really bad, so in Bowery decided not to live, but the outside is pretty decent.
