Bowery Apartments

Manhattan’s Bowery neighborhood is a historically rich one, with its name (bouwerij in Dutch) spanning all the way back to the 17th century.

This neighborhood is tucked cozily between chic Soho to the west, bustling Chinatown to the south, Little Italy and the Lower East Side a few blocks away. The area lends itself to several main thoroughfares such as Houston Street, Delancey and the Bowery itself.

The lush farms of the 17th century may have long since gone but the Bowery’s diversity and culture have passed the test of time. The pawn shops, brothels and street gangs of the 1800s have been replaced with trendy bars, a large and pristine Whole Foods and the New Museum of Contemporary Art.

The area’s gentrification, which began in the early 2000s, has been supported by the development of high-rise condominiums such as the Avalon Bowery Place on Bowery and many other buildings are still in visible phases of renovation and construction. This strong surviving neighborhood was registered with the New York State Register of Historical Places in 2011.

More about Bowery

The Bowery is still a creative cornerstone to artists both upcoming and well known. The Bowery Ballroom is a popular music hall built just before the Great Depression and converted into a venue in 1997. The Bowery Poetry Club at Bowery and Bleecker hosts poetry slams and performances that still channel the edge, atmosphere and literary lust of the alternative scene that has been anchored in the Lower East part of Manhattan since the 1950s. Famed punk rock venue CBGB was based at 315 Bowery until it’s closing in 2006. Despite the changing times, most neighborhood bars and cafes will still have an artsy, creative vibe with artists, musicians, poets, writers, photographers and other kinds of beatniks hanging around and talking with their friends.

Renowned residents have included photographer Terry Richardson, Joey Ramone, William S. Burroughs and Jim Gaffigan. Living in the Bowery will make you feel like a character in all the films, books and songs that still reference this richly historical New York neighborhood. Local transport includes the F at 2nd avenue, the J at Bowery and the B, D at Grand Street.
