The Lower East Side of Manhattan is located in the far southeastern section of the island. Boundary of this area is not exactly finding because the area has been constantly changed and renewing. It is difficult to tell exactly where the Lower East Side end and where the adjacent neighborhood started. One interpreted the boundary by Bowery on the west, the East River to the east, Houston Street to the north and Grand Street to the south. But others believe it is bounded by the Brooklyn Bridge on the south to Houston Street on the north, from the East River to the Bowery.
