The Lower East Side is known for its delightfully rough-around-the-edges appeal. A favorite among 20-something New Yorkers, the hip downtown neighborhood is home to cutting-edge fashion boutiques, sleek hotels and grungy dance bars. On Allen Street, one of the area’s busiest streets, you can now rent this newly white-boxed space for any retail concept.
The crowd here sways younger and a bit more eclectic. After work and on weekends, you’ll find droves of trendy locals packing out local bars and restaurants like Pianos and Beauty & Essex, as well as intimate music venues like Mercury Lounge. The 2nd Avenue F and M trains are a couple of minutes away.

This space is next to the popular Rockwood Music Hall and a few doors from the high-end boutique hotel, SIXTY LES. Right around the corner, the iconic Russ & Daughters has been serving some of the city’s best bagels since 1914.
