  • Hi Angie,

    Generally we define the “greater” L.E.S. as below 14th and East of the Bowery, down to Canal and all the way to the water the further east you go.

    Hope this helps!

    Will The Yard take a cut from my asking price? If so, what is the percentage?…50/50? 60/40? I want to figure in the percentage so I get what I want for my work. Thanks, Michael
