Why locals recommend it
This Lower East Side street was once the hub of an enormous, thriving neighborhood of Jewish immigrants, who ran small shops and vending carts that packed every block. In 1940, the mayor had the vendors move indoors to the Essex Street Market. It's still a hub of local vendors, who now sell everything from bagels and cheese to tortas and sushi. Because of the large number of pickle merchants that once lined Essex Street, it became known as the pickle district. At least one still survives—the Pickle Guys, at the corner of Grand, who keep the wonderful flavor of the neighborhood’s iconic foods alive.
