"Rock or Shop - Your Choice"

It really depends on what you wish to do on a given day or night. If you want to dance the night away, there are clubs along the street. If you want to shop, there are stores along the way as well. Whatever your fancy you will find it here. However, it isn't exactly a clean place. So be on guard. You never know who is lurking around somewhere.

"Orchard Street.....rocking place!!!"

If you wanna have a party every weekend must come here......i spend my every weekend night here......hanging with girls...having parties.....Bars like Lucky Jacks and The Skinny are just get full upto its capacity....beside night life its a good place to live with friends there......Orchard Street Rocks!!!!

"A good place for some shopping"

If you like local markets and mixing with the community, Orchard Street on a Sunday morning is the place to be if you are in Manhattan. The opportunity to pick up some vintage clothes at a great price makes it worth the trip, as does the number of stores in the local area. It may seem a bit run down but the prices on offer overrides any concerns about the area and it is quite friendly and welcoming.

"The Bargain District"

Orchard Street runs through the Lower East Side between Division St and E 1st St. This street is perfect to find good bargains. Its shops offer discounted prices for leather, and designer fashion bags, belts and cloths. It is within walking distance from the restaurants, cafes, and clubs of Ludlow, Rivington and Broome Streets.

"Loud but interesting"

Home to the "recently legal" party crowd Orchard Street is rowdy at night as the bars fill to capacity. Lucky Jacks and The Skinny are fairly popular with the 20something crowd as are a number of other bars along the way. If you like the nightlife by all means call Orchard home, however the noise can be a lot to deal with when you aren't part of the party.

"Part of the 20-something scene"

Even though there are fancy hotels being built on Orchard Street next to buildings that formerly housed tenements, the street still retains a certain quaintness. Zucco le French Diner, for example, is a tiny French restaurant (15 seats) with excellent escargot.

The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is also located on Orchard Street. If anyone is interested in the varied history of the neighborhood, then definitely check it out (fun fact: at one point in LES history, the neighborhood may have housed more than half the population of the city when residents were crammed into tenement housing).

Currently Orchard Street is part of the Lower East Side nightlife scene - on any given night (especially on weekends), twenty-somethings flock to Annex and Slipper Room. During the day shoppers and restaurant goers abound.

"The street comes alive at night"

Orchard Street has different feels depending on which part you are on but overall the street really comes alive at night and on the weekends. It hosts a number of hip and trendy lounges and restaurants. It's extremely eclectic so most people can find something to fit their tastes. Those who live on the road appear to enjoy that fact as well. Orchard pretty much meets the needs of all different people with varying interests and desires. One point of interest is Tut's, a club that offers food, drinks and hookah all delivered with a Middle Eastern and Egyptian flare.

"A LES institution."

Orchard Street is home to the Tenement Museum and lots of cheap stores, but its main claim to fame is the one and only Guss's Pickles. Pickle making used to be a big industry in the area when it had not gentrified and there were still thousands and thousands of Jews living nearby. That aspect of the Lower East Side is gone, but it is not forgotten thanks to Guss's Pickles. I try to go downtown into the LES every year to see Katz's and Yonah's and get a half sour pickle at Guss's. It's especially good in the summer to go for one in the summer - not the usual ice cream, but just as refreshing.
