Location

Red Square sits on the border of the East Village and the Lower East Side – both neighborhoods that have undergone some serious rebirthing in the past few decades. The Lower East Side was formerly the home of poor immigrants, who lived crammed into tenement housing with no electricity and little to eat. The East Village, especially to the East in Alphabet City (where Red Square now sits), was a haven for drug addicts who squatted in empty buildings. Today, both neighborhoods offer a bevy of bars and eateries. Each is known for its nightlife; the East Village is beloved for its proximity to transportation hub Union Square, while the Lower East Side is known for its nightlife.
