Welcome To The Neighborhood

With convenient access to the most iconic attractions (and hidden treasures) of New York City, The Allen Hotel puts guests within minutes of impressive architecture, world-class shopping, and an endless parade of epicurean delights on the Lower East Side. We also encourage our guests to venture out and explore Tribeca, Nolita, Little Italy, SoHo, Chinatown, and beyond. 

The Lower East Side

0.5 mi.
9 min walk

The Lower East Side, or LES, is a neighborhood on the southeastern side of Manhattan, most commonly known for an exciting night out on the town. Its narrow streets are lined with trendy restaurants, bars, and clubs on the cutting edge of New York’s alternative music scene.

18 min walk

Cast-iron architectural elements and cobblestone streets make SoHo the perfect place to sightsee and shop. Art galleries, exclusive eateries, and designer boutiques, as well as independent fashion labels, make this “South of Houston Street” neighborhood a hotspot for local celebs and visitors alike.

Little Italy

0.4 mi.
9 min walk

A bustling center for Italian heritage in New York since the 1880’s, Little Italy is lined with authentic Italian restaurants, al fresco cafes, and gourmet artisan shops selling everything from imported olive oils to scratch-made pastas and sauce – its ever-evolving culinary reach now stretching into Nolita (North of Little Italy) too!


0.5 mi.
11 min walk

Packed with street-side markets, vendor stalls, and speakeasy bars, Chinatown is one of the most chaotic and frenetic neighborhoods of downtown Manhattan. Well worth the trip into heavy foot traffic, this bustling city district is lined with authentic Chinese restaurants and shops, and has the tastiest dumplings in town.
