LES Visitor Center
New Visitor Center Opens in the Lower East Side
The Lower East Side Business Improvement District (LES BID) has opened a new Visitor Center at 54 Orchard in the heart of the Lower East Side. The new Visitor Center provides local neighborhood residents, tourists and New Yorkers information to help discover all of the treasures of the Lower East Side of New York City.
The Center provides a number of brochures and guides to help anyone explore the Lower East Side, including the LES BID’s GO EAST! Neighborhood Guide and the Lower East Side Gallery Guide. The Visitor Center is free and open to the public, and also offers free Wi-Fi.
LES BID staff are available to assist visitors with navigating the neighborhood, including shopping, sight-seeing, or dining and nightlife.
The Center is open Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Visitor Center also offers LES t-shirts for $20, for those wishing to show their LES neighborhood pride.
The Lower East Side Visitor Center was made possible with the generous support of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
