In a feature on the city's ideal neighborhoods, Time Out New York says the LES is the city's ideal arts community:
Right now at least, the Lower East Side’s art scene is recapturing the
excitement of Soho circa 1978, according to Matthew Lyons, curator of
the Kitchen in Chelsea. “What sets the neighborhood apart is that there’s a truly collaborative
spirit that builds partnerships and creates synergy as an artistic
community,” he says. “This is rare among artists.” And thankfully, he
adds, the area has a long way to go before it’s as gentrified as Soho… As far as our experts are concerned, this is artistic
community at its best.“For a neighborhood on the cusp of
discovery, the artistic flavor has an old ring to it—artists have lived
here for a long time,” says (Anne) Pasternak (of the non-profit, Creative Time), pointing to a history of Beat
poets and theater communities. “Now the old energy of places like the
Bowery and other fringe areas is converging with the new.”
