LOWER EAST SIDE LIFESTYLE
The Ridley at 66 Allen is a Lower East Side icon blended beautifully among the other historic buildings that make up this energetic and accessible neighborhood.
The Lower East Side is a neighborhood that was once largely identified as an immigrant and working class area, but now serves as a sought-after spot that is home to many fashionable boutiques, trendy restaurants, and an effervescent art scene. Once placed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Most Endangered Places, the LES continues to blossom as fresh architecture quickly replaces the pre-war customary type building. As a result, this mix of new and old leads to many complementary streetscapes and scenery. The LES is home to many parks including the popular La Plaza Cultural and surrounded by East Houston Street to the north, Canal Street to the south, the East River to the east and Bowery to the west.
