Downtown Manhattan is anything south of 14th Street. It is home to countless restaurants and eateries and boutiques that come and go, but also neighborhood staples, like Katz Delicatessen, Russ and Daughters, and well-known institutions such as Momofuku and Nobu. New York University’s main campus is located around Washington Square Park, where many enjoy tanning and people watching when the weather is nice. East 9th and 10th Streets are lined inconspicuously with contemporary Asian restaurants and bars, featuring a number of pearl milk tea shops, and Japanese establishments. The number of swanky boutiques and chic cafes in Downtown Manhattan are too many to list, as are the number of cheap affordable bites in Chinatown. Chinatown groceries are also a great bargain, if you can brave the crowd and have a little time to sift through vegetables for the prize cabbage.
To the West is the Hudson River path, where runners run and lovers stroll. At the southern tip of Downtown Manhattan lies the World Trade Center site, a somber reminder of 9/11 amidst the daily city hustle. The Financial District is known for the suits walking around late nights and early mornings, and is home to the famous Charging Bull, symbolizing the financial strength and prosperity of Wall Street. Nightlife is delegated to the East and West Village. The west side of Downtown Manhattan also houses the Meatpacking district. Historically a seedy area consisting mainly of meat processing warehouses, it now houses many upscale nightclubs and swanky hotels, many of which house their own exclusive lounges. Low-key bars are the staples of the East Village and the Lower East Side, which are also popular for quick bites after a long night out. For those who think Manhattan is too mainstream and want quick access to Brooklyn, there are the Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges.
The best way to describe Downtown Manhattan would be an eclectic mix. While apartments aren’t especially large, they are in close proximity to universities and jobs, so the number of young people are on the rise. Apartment hunting is competitive, as is competition in just about anything else- jobs, night life, restaurant business, etc. Competition aside, there are many bars, cafes, and restaurants to choose from to relax in, and a place for everyone. Gentrification has progressed miles and the Bowery now is almost unrecognizable as the Bowery in the 1900’s. Because of close proximity to Brooklyn, many chose to commute to work in Downtown Manhattan, coming into the city either by subway or bike.
