LOWER EAST SIDE

1612069914621.png

The Lower East Side, sometimes abbreviated as LES and sometimes referred to as Loisaida, is a neighborhood in the southeastern part of the New York City borough of Manhattan, roughly between the Bowery and the East River from Canal to Houston streets. Traditionally an immigrant, working-class neighborhood, it began rapid gentrification in the mid-2000s, prompting the National Trust for Historic Preservation to place the neighborhood on their list of America's Most Endangered Places.

The Lower East Side is part of Manhattan Community District 3, and its primary ZIP Code is 10002. It is patrolled by the 7th Precinct of the New York City Police Department.

Fire safety

The Lower East Side is served by two New York City Fire Department (FDNY) fire stations:[72]

Engine Co. 15/Ladder Co. 18/Battalion 4 – 25 Pitt Street
Engine Co. 9/Ladder Co. 6 – 75 Canal Street

A 19th Century Eating Tour of the Lower East Side

Pastrami, pickles, bagels with cream cheese, smoked lox salmon, pumpernickel and rye breads! Many of the food we traditionally associate today with New York can be traced to a particular period in time, and a very distinct neighbourhood – the iconic Lower East Side of the late 19th century.

This was once one of the mostly densely populated places on the planet, packed with hundreds of thousands of immigrants, living in teeming, overcrowded and often squalid tenements. Vast communities of Irish and Germans were followed by Eastern European and Russian Jews, fleeing persecution. They brought their own distinct culture, language, and especially food.

The Richmond Hill battalion was organized in 1907 as Battalion 50. Two years later, it was consolidated with the Jamaica battalion, which had originally been numbered as Battalion 51. The consolidated battalion was numbered as Battalion 50. In 1915, the Richmond Hill battalion was re-established, this time being numbered as Battalion 51.

The Brownsville Battalion was the last battalion organized in the Brooklyn Fire Department. District Engineer 14 came into existence a mere six weeks prior to consolidation into the FDNY. Numerically it progressed from Battalion 14 Brooklyn, to original Battalion 34, and then to Battalion 44. In 1965, a second section was organized, later becoming Battalion 58 in 1969.
