The Financial Center downtown was the first neighborhood in the world to be created solely for financial purposes.

Manhattan was

gridded in the early 19th century.

A long time

before the lofts and penthouses, the Lower East Side and the Bowery were areas of low-income housing for poor immigrants. Steven Crane wrote a famous novel about a poor Irish girl called Maggie: Girl of the Streets, located on Bowery.

CBGB, once located at Bowery and 2nd, stood for Country, BlueGrass and Blues. Bands such as Television, the Ramones and Patti Smith played in-house in the ’70s and soon the club acquired a reputation for playing punk rock music. It was a scene for new bands such as Blondie and Talking Heads throughout the ’80s. It closed in 2006.

A walking tour of Bowery, the East Village, SoHo and Chinatown is a great way to spend an afternoon. There are lots of great restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood as well as interesting people to meet. And best of all, most of these sites are literally a stone’s throw from your hostel NY. You don’t even have to take the subway.
