Once known for its tenement buildings and mom-and-pop stores, the Lower East Side looks a lot different today. Many of the older, walk-up buildings prevalent here have been overhauled (although you can still count on having to take the stairs) and new construction is rising as well. The mega development Essex Crossing will have over 1,000 new residences (to rent or buy) and over 450,000 square feet of retail space. It’s scheduled for completion in 2024.
In the meantime, here are five Lower East Side one bedrooms that you can rent in this ever-changing locale for under $2,400 a month.
