Last week, Adam Sandler’s latest project, The Cobbler, spent four days shooting in and around Forsyth Street.

Despite the recent crackdown on street performers and the wishy-washiness of the City Parks Department, it appears that outdoor theatrics are alive and well on the Lower East Side. Indie folk favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros strolled into Sara D. Roosevelt Park recently to busk “Better Days,” the leadoff track from their third album, […]

As Bowery Boogie enters its sixth year of existence (oh yeah… did we forget to mention our anniversary?), we wanted to find a way to leave our mark on the physical realm of the Lower East Side in addition to this whole internet/cyberspace thing we do. A huge chunk of what we cover here is […]
