Traditional immigrant sector of Manhattan. The most "New Yorky" part of The City. Has great local color and a great place to be from. Unfortunately, becoming gentrified and taken over by corny white boys from the outlands. Can be very dangerous in parts, but you get over it.
Ah, crap, that block of East 7th is all under renovation.

Where all the would-be hipsters used to hang out. Now becoming as upscale, snobby and annoying as SoHo. Known for frequent Moby sightings.

Use to be one of the toughest section in New York City, well, one of the most dangerous part in the US, if you was an outsider of course or brought problems. Use to be a REAL neighborhood with REAL New Yorkers where every race, religion and creed lived together. Yeah, it was a real neighborhood with a tough, working class melting pot who never gave a shit about how much money you had, what you wear, or the color of your skin. Until it got replaced by swarms of snobby, superficial yuppies, hipsters, etc... from Smallville fucking, USA who really believes the world revolves around them and everyone should bow down to them, of course till they realize, after they get their asses kicked, ridiculed, or cursed out, it just doesn't work that way. If one really THINKS about it, the real reason why they all showed up was because of what they saw on the movies, TV shows, songs, and music videos and tried to live that life, a real, sleazy, gritty, New York life, (NYC was always like that till the late 90's.) Till it was packaged and put on the silver screen for everyone else to see) however, they can't take into consideration that it was clearly THEY, that destroyed the very fabric and culture of what this great city once stood for. I'm DEAD SERIOUS.
Friend: What happened to Lower East Side????

A yuppie, then a hipster walks by on a cell. "Yeah, I live in NYC"

Me: That's what happened!!!

RIP: NYC (The greatest home on earth; The home of the Braves and REAL Nu Yawkas.)

For those haters, jealous, envious people; I don't care if you give a thumbs down because all New Yorkers know its the truth. Just ASK them.

Milwaukee's home to all of it's yuppies! The lower east side is surrounded by Riverwest, Downtown, and The UWM housing area. Brady Street is home to some of Milwaukee's Swankiest bars, shops, resturants, and people.
The Lower East Side Rocks my world. All of the hottest girls in Milwaukee Reside there. If you boys ever need a date, take some time to peruse the options of the lower east side.
