City life is infinitely more fun, intimate and exciting when you have friends living close. The major advantages are:

    you get a sense of community

    you can randomly arrange to do things without planning days/weeks in advance

    and you can walk over to see your friends!

This group is designed to make friends that live in/around the Lower East side area of Manhattan - including the Lower East Side/Chinatown/Alphabet City/East Village area - which just so happens to be one of the best parts of the best city in the world :-)

Most of our members meet the criteria below and you should too:

    Aged forty or younger

    Living within half-hour of walking of Avenue A & Houston (you're welcome to invite other non-local friends along once we get to know you.)

    Are a sociable, non-creepy, and non-flaky individual.

In return this group can offer:

    drink, dinner, dessert, lunch and brunch, events

    galleries, shows, movies, exhibits, and other cultural events

    occasional trips outside of the neighborhood to remind ourselves there is life out there

    occasional house parties, picnics, etc

    a community of like minded friends who you will think of when in later life you look back to your time in the L.E.S and think "Ah those were the days" :-)

    and hopefully good neighbors and lifelong friends!

Looking forward to meeting you soon.

We're 193 Fun cool locals

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
