This is the heart of the Lower East Side,
home to 1st-generation immigrants since the
mid-1800s. New Yorkers have been bargain-hunting
down here for about that long too. But see the
picture that doesn't seem to go with the others?
That art gallery is the face of the gentrification that's
going on in this area. Guess it was inevitable.
