Our Top Lower East Side Moving Tips

Hugging the southeastern corner of Manhattan, LES tops out at Houston Street (pronounced “Hows-ton,” not “Hues-ton” like the city in Texas) and stretches south to South Street. West to east, it goes from Bowery all the way to the water’s edge of the East River. You’ll find plenty of action-packed neighborhoods nearby with Chinatown, Nolita, and the East Village just a hop, skip, and a subway train ride away. 

Knowing what’s around the neighborhood is just a sliver of what’s in store for you as a new resident of LES. As such, we wanted to share a few tips and details to get you acquainted with your new home ASAP:

  • Cost of housing and transit. It’s no secret that LES is a desirable place to call home. The housing costs of a variety of abodes including condos, lofts and  tenement-style buildings reflect that high interest of living here. To that end, if you were set on making one of them your very own, set your sights on a median listing price at $1.1 million. If that’s not in your budget or you prefer a rental to begin with, you’ll also find that average rents are higher in this part of Manhattan. For reference, a one-bedroom in LES averages about $3,648 a month. While these high prices have a hopeful resident doing a double take, one bonus of living in this part of the city is the plentiful public transit options. There’s a multitude of nearby subway lines, which make it easy and economical to commute to and from LES. You’ll have access to the 6, B, D, J, M, F, and Z Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) subway trains. The MTA also operates a robust network of bus lines if commuting primarily above ground suits your needs. Both the buses and subway trains only cost $2.75 for a one-way ride, so that may be where some savings can be found. But there’s more! Being along a waterfront, you won’t be too far away from the Soundview city ferry line (with a one-way ticket costing $4.00). The neighborhood also has ample bike lanes for getting from point A to point B on 2 wheels.
  • LES-s is more flavor. If you love latkes, then you’ve come to the right place (though there’s plenty of other items on the neighborhood menus, of course). Two heavy-hitters when it comes to only-in-NYC noshes are located in this neighborhood: Katz’s Deli and Russ and Daughters. Around since 1888, Katz’s Deli serves up mile-high Jewish American food to its regularly hungry crowd. And when it comes to Russ and Daughters, it isn’t just a clever name. This family-owned cafe will have you yearning for the salmon lox you had on your bagel yesterday and coming back in for more. Boasting the best blueberry pancakes in the city (seriously, it’s award winning), Clinton St. Baking Company is a very popular spot to enjoy a meal. This neighborhood is full of incredibly on-trend eateries that’ll have you waiting in line because they’re that good, including Dirty French and Ivan Ramen.
  • Live music and the LES nightlife. When it comes to entertainment, the LES is known for the live music scene. You’ll find a wide variety of sounds spanning across the folk, punk, rap, and rock genres among these streets. Buy that ticket and take yourself to the Mercury Lounge, Arlene’s Grocery, Pianos, and the Bowery Ballroom just to name a few. Bring a pal to join you from out of town and you’ll instantly have some serious music cred to your name. If there isn’t a band you’re dying to see or just looking for a different vibe, you can find plenty of other watering holes in LES to suit your specifics. Amped for trivia night with the crew? Parkside Lounge on Wednesday nights until 4am has got what you need. Looking for a Sunday afternoon vibe? The Grand Delancey has a frosty pint on the 7th day of the week waiting for you. Hoping for a spot where you can grab a drink and won’t have to lose your voice having a conversation? The Magician is your new go-to neighborhood bar.
  • Culture and commerce. How will you spend your days in LES? There’s so much to explore on all fronts. To begin, this neighborhood is a testament to how NYC has style, but it comes in all price ranges. You can find just the right piece to suit your city sensibilities at one of the many boutiques and thrift stores in the area. Culinarily speaking, there’s a whole world of flavors you can discover within the food markets and shops in LES. A stroll through the historic Essex Market means browsing a variety of vendors selling fresh produce, cheeses (of the dairy and vegan varieties), fish, baked goods, and a number of beers on tap. Need to narrow down the shopping list to just candy? You could spend an entire day picking out your sugar-laden favorites at the well-known Economy Candy. If you need to work off the sugar high, there’s several locations you can visit to both increase your steps and your cultural knowledge. Among them is the Tenement Museum, where you can step inside New York City’s history — literally. It’s housed in a previously shuttered tenement building and you can tour 2 historic buildings at 97 and 103 Orchard Street. Fast forward to fine and fresh art, you can also take a gander at the new art at the New Museum. You’ll never grow tired of what’s on offer in this neighborhood.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
