Buildings of the East Village



Come to LESPI's contemporary photo exhibit "East Village: Lens on the Lower East Side". We're celebrating the 50th anniversary of NYC's Landmarks Law and Lower East Side History Month!

With the return of beautiful spring weather, it's a great time to show your support for Lower East Side preservation with a LESPI t-shirt!

Check out more LESPI photos on our Flickr site, and a huge range of archival to contemporary shots of the historic East Village / Lower East Side on our Pinterest site!
