Crossing Bowery, in the East Village

A glimpse of Bowery Street.

Actually, you rarely hear New Yorkers say 'Bowery Street'. We usually just say 'Bowery', as in, 'It's south, just beyond Bowery'.

The street is a little rough around the edges, with restaurant supply stores, graffiti, some restaurants and bars. Several years ago, the New Museum opened on this street, near Prince Street, making the area more of a destination.

Bowery is a wide street with a divider in the middle. It is a continuation of Third Avenue, which stops at Astor Place.
