the lower east side
Loisaida (pronounced: lou.i.saidә) is a term derived from the Latino (and especially Nuyorican) pronunciation of “Lower East Side”. The term was originally coined by poet/activist, Bittman “Bimbo” Rivas in his 1974 poem "Loisaida". Loisaida Avenue is now an alternative name for Avenue C in the Alphabet City neighborhood of the East Village, New York City, whose population has largely been Hispanic since the late 1960’s.
Historically, the Lower East Side stretched from the East River at the southern end to 14th Street at the northern end, bound on the east by the river and on the west by First Avenue. It originally comprised German, Jewish, Irish and Italian working-class residents who lived in tenements without running water. Since the 1940s the demographic changed markedly several times: the addition of Stuyvesant Town / Peter Cooper Village after World War II at the northern end added a lower-middle to middle-class element to the area which contributed to the eventual gentrification of the area. The construction of large government housing projects south and east of 14rh Street and the growing Latino population transformed a large swath of the neighborhood into a Latin one until the late 1990’s when low rents attracted large numbers of artists and students to the area.
Today Loisaida is a hipster mecca that is quickly becoming further gentrified. Of particular interest is the large number of pocket gardens that are open to the public. With many new restaurants and shops opening in the area it is the perfect location for the Michael Mut Project Space.
