During the 19th century, the Lower East Side (the area east of Bowery and between East Houston and Division) became home to millions who immigrated to the United States from Europe. This long history as a melting pot of cultures has been captured by the Lower East Side Tenement Museum on Orchard Street, which conducts several informative tours of the area. Today, the LES has emerged as one of the Big Apple's coolest neighborhoods, a place of chic boutiques and cutting edge restaurants. TRAIN: F to Delancey
