A jazzy tune, barb-q, sprinklers, children, chatter, and laughter. That sums up a summer in one of New York City’s LES community gardens. Hidden behind trees between residential buildings dwell lively gardens nestled where the community joins to keep them alive through events. Living in the fast lane deems it near impossible to learn who your neighbors are but not here in this savvy artistic world. Manhattan’s LES vibrant all seasons with streets ornamented with vintage boutiques, galleries, bars, cafes, restaurants, culture and most of all history.
The LES has undergone a great deal of gentrification in the recent years by new residents and a major artist movement in the 60’s. It was previously referred to the area alongside the East River but is now bounded by Allen St., East Houston St., Essex St., Canal St., Eldridge St., East Broadway, and Grand St. LES traditionally was home to an immigrant working class of people. The post-gentrified community consists of a great deal of students and artists.
