The Bowery, which refers to both the street and its surrounding neighborhood, is located almost in the center of lower Manhattan, in between the Lower East Side and Little Italy. From the late 18th century to the mid 20th century, the Bowery had a reputation for being dangerous and was largely ignored, with many buildings falling into disrepair. Perhaps for this reason, the Bowery has long been a favorite for artists and other creative types and was home for years to the legendary punk venue CBGB. Over the past few decades, however, as lower Manhattan has experienced an economic revival, so has the Bowery. Spurred in part by the reopened Bowery Ballroom and other artistic ventures in the area, such as the opening of the New Museum at its new location, the Bowery is now more popular than ever among those looking for an edgier side to Manhattan.
