For decades, the Lower East Side has served as a historic gateway to New York City for waves of immigrants from around the world. Over time, those new arrivals left their indelible stamps on the Lower East Side and the surrounding neighborhoods. No other shopping experience captures the spirit and character of a neighborhood better than a bustling market. And no other neighborhood captures the diversity and culture of New York City like the Lower East Side.
The Market Line sits in the heart of the Lower East Side directly adjacent to the F-J-M-Z Essex & Delancey Street subway stops. When complete, The Market Line will be a continuous 700 foot-long marketplace spanning three city blocks serving the daily needs of the neighborhood while attracting visitors from around the world. Lower East Side visitors will be able to enjoy an interconnected subterranean experience unlike anything in New York City.
