  WHAT’S LIVING IN Two Bridges LIKE?

Two Bridges is a tiny neighborhood in lower Manhattan sandwiched between the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge. Most New Yorkers have never heard of (including this author, who lived in the city for years). But being under-the-radar is just the way its residents like it. Unlike some of its neighbors it hasn't been gentrified yet, leaving an old school, affordable neighborhood of long-time residents and brick walk-ups (though new development is creeping in). There is also a large public housing development in the southern corner of the neighborhood.

Because Chinatown is next door and due to a recent influx of immigrants from the Fujian province in China, most of the popular restaurants here are Chinese. However, you also have some coffee shops and other types of food available.

Two Bridges is bordered on the north by the Lower East Side, on the east by the East River, on the south by Civic Center, and on the west by Chinatown.
