Summer Scene: Lower East Side

I decided I had been neglecting the Lower East Side last week, so I took a good two-hour long walk.  It's one of the neighborhoods that I can still get lost in because I never remember where Stanton, Rivington & Delancey are in reference to all the other streets.  The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is a must-do for any visitor, and you can stop at Little Giant for lunch before or after (January 2012: Little Giant is now closed). And don't miss a stop at Babycakes NYC for a delicious, vegan treat.  It was a beautiful summer walk.
