Rebuilding In Lower Manhattan: The Changing Profile Of NYC's Lower East Side

What's next?

Recent changes on the Lower East Side have made the neighborhood somewhat unrecognizable to some of its longstanding residents. Yet, community is being fostered in new and innovative ways, maybe more so than any other neighborhood in Manhattan.  While middle-class and low-income residents are being pushed out of the rest of the city, the LES does not forget that it started as a community of immigrants and honors its diverse socio-economic and racial background.  Unlike the boom in the other areas of Lower Manhattan, half of Essex Crossing's new residents will be low-income and, true to the history of change and development on the Lower East Side, will live alongside the new residents of higher-end apartments. 

Joanna Samuels, the Executive Director of the Manny Cantor Center explains, "There are so many ways in which people are divided on the basis of their economic class…. But the Lower East Side is a special and unique neighborhood in its diversity.  Our goal is to embrace that diversity, and to champion it.  We hope that the Manny Cantor Center will be like a tent, whose stakes can be ever-expanded to welcome and celebrate this community's residents."
