Immigrant neighborhood

Famous Katz's Deli, symbol of the neighborhood's Jewish history, is dwarfed by the development occurring around the Lower East Side

One of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, the Lower East Side has long been known as a lower-class, working neighborhood and often as a poor and diverse community. The Lower East Side was once a center of Jewish culture. Vestiges of the area's Jewish heritage exist in shops on Hester Street and Essex Street and on Grand Street near Pike. There is still an Orthodox Jewish community with yeshiva day schools and a mikvah. A few Judaica shops can be found along Essex Street such as the Nat Weisberg and Sons (Hebrew religious articles) at number 45 [1] and a few Jewish scribes and variety stores. Some kosher delis and bakeries as well as a few "kosher style" delis, including the famous Katz's Deli, are located in the neighborhood.

The Bowery, though no longer a largely deserted place save for the legendary Bowery bums, remains the final location at 227-229 Bowery of Christian Herald Association's noteworthy faith-based organization known as The Bowery Mission, historically serving the down-and-out since it was incorporated in New York State in April 20, 1895. An extant memorial tablet in the mission chapel is dedicated to the presbyterian minister and founder of the mission, Albert Gleason Ruliffson. This tablets records Nov. 1879 as the founding of "this mission". This designation, however, did not apply to 227. At that time, the mission had been sited at 55- and still later 105-Bowery. The third Annual Report of The Bowery Mission written in 1883 by Ruliffson, states that on the night of November 6, 1880 the mission, then located at 36 Bowery, first opened its doors to the public. Ruliffson as first president of the mission retired due to a severe medical condition in 1895. A severe economic downturn during the 1890s strained the financial solvency of the mission. Rather than cease to function as a mission due to financial hardship, Dr. Louis Klopsch of Christian Herald Association was approached to save the mission. Klopsch agreed, assumed management as the second president and incorporated the mission under Christian Herald. The present building at 227 Bowery was dedicated in 1909. While 1879 is the year which appears on the website bowery.org, a review of period newspapers such as The New York Times and The New York Tribune suggest 1880 rather than 1879 as a possible founding year. Indeed, King's Handbook of New York, contemporaneous with Christian Herald management of the mission, gives 1880 as the year the mission was founded.remains the location of the famous Bowery Mission, serving the down-and-out since 1879.

East Village split and gentrification

East Village was once Lower East Side's northwest corner alongside Greenwich Village. However, in the 1960s, the demographics of the area above Houston Street began to change, as hippies, musicians and artists moved in. Newcomers and real estate brokers popularized the East Village name, and the term was adopted by the popular media by the mid-60s. As East Village developed a culture separate from the rest of the Lower East Side, the two areas came to be seen as two separate neighborhoods rather that the former being part of the latter.[3][4] The Washington Square Arch Greenwich Village (IPA pronunciation: ), also called simply the Village, is a largely residential area on the west side of downtown (southern) Manhattan in New York City named after Greenwich, London. ... Hippies (singular hippie or sometimes hippy) were members of the 1960s counterculture movement who adopted a communal or nomadic lifestyle, renounced corporate nationalism and the Vietnam War, embraced aspects of Buddhism, Hinduism, and/or Native American religious culture, and were otherwise at odds with traditional middle class Western values. ...

In recent years, the gentrification that was previously confined to north of Delancey Street has continued south. Several restaurants, bars and galleries have opened below Delancey Street since 2005, especially around the intersection of Broome and Orchard Streets. This area is gradually becoming known as BelDel (Below Delancey), mainly by hipsters who feel that the LES has become too "Murray Hill" and want to differentiate themselves. The neighborhood's second boutique hotel, Blue Moon Hotel opened on Orchard Street just south of Delancey Street in early 2006. However, unlike THOR, the Blue Moon used an existing tenement building and its exterior is almost identical to neighboring buildings.
