Photo by myself at Orchard and Broome Streets, on the Lower East Side.
The Lower East Side is a neighborhood known for its old fashioned character. It has not succumbed to chain stores or Starbucks. Thank goodness.
Some streets are still paved neatly in cobblestone. Faded old signs mark textile stores that have existed for generations. Quirky new bars and restaurants have moved in, during the last several years.
