Spotlight on the Bowery!
The Bowery is another neighborhood in Manhattan with an outdated reputation. Once a neighborhood of disrepair, the current market and flavor of the Bowery is up and coming, fresh and exciting. It cuts through several different neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan, from Chinatown on the south to NoHo and the East Village in the north.
Historically, the Bowery is actually the oldest thoroughfare on Manhattan Island, beginning life as a Lenape footpath, which once spanned roughly the entire length of the island. It evolved from large farms to home of everything from music venues like CBGB and the Bowery Ballroom, to restaurant supply businesses, lining the streets. The transformation to residential neighborhood and next hot real estate market has been ongoing. Since the 1990s, the Bowery has been reviving, becoming home to luxury apartment complexes and newly renovated buildings.
Homes for sale in the Bowery are mostly condominiums and lofts in brand new buildings – doorman buildings and spacious apartments tucked in the industrial architecture of the neighborhood. It’s also the home of the New Museum of Contemporary Art and a Bowery Historic District. Add in diverse shopping, a Whole Foods and classic NYC sites and you have the new hot ticket in town.
