About Bowery Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Located in a sliver of lower Manhattan from Chatham Square to Astor Place, The Bowery contains NYC’s oldest street and thus nearly every facet of the city’s gritty and glamorous history. Though Teddy Roosevelt likened it to Dante’s Inferno in 1913, the neighborhood now boasts some of NYC’s ritziest addresses, an esteemed entertainment district and cultural bastions like New Museum, Cooper Union and Bowery Poetry. Flophouses and grungy dive bars have been replaced by Michelin star restaurants and date-night cocktail bars. The tiny enclave is also jam-packed with cultural happenings, from antique and designer boutiques to contemporary galleries, music venues, speakeasies, and the mysterious art-splattered Freeman's alley.
