The Lower East Side is constantly changing. New restaurants and shops opening up almost weekly (which is fun, of course!), but I hope it never loses that grungy quirkiness that makes it unique from other parts of Manhattan. I think these photos really embody what I love so much about this neighborhood…cool old buildings and graffiti’d walls standing strong between the cozy wine bars and vintage stores that line Ludlow street.
