Cultural & Community

Historically, the East Village and the Lower East Side are some of the most culturally vibrant and socially progressive neighborhoods in the city. The idea of “Downtown” as a cultural and social incubator is inextricably linked to these neighborhoods. Alongside these unconventional and avant-garde currents are the daily functions of civic life and government administration. In these neighborhoods, the anti-establishment and the bureaucratic meet.
