one of my favourite streets in new york, the lower east side is home to the tenement museum which tells the story of immigrant families. visitors view restored apartments of past residents from different time periods of 97 Orchard Street, which was home to 7000 people from 1863-1935 – this is one of the most interesting museums in new york and is a must for everyone. there are lots of independent shops including beautiful hats at victor osborne, the flower girl, which is tucked at the back of the earnest sewn shop and one of my favourite vintage shops, david owens vintage clothing – a small select choice of 1930′s and 40′s clothes for men and women – whats great about this shop is that isnt crowded out with tons of clothes, but just a select few. what i love about the shops in new york is the creativity and individuality of the decor of each shop – the displays are so inspiring.
