Drive to the east and Canal Street to the south. The neighborhood is bordered in the south and west by Chinatown — which extends north to roughly Grand Street, in the west by Nolita and in the north by the East Village. History[ edit ] Prior to Europeans[ edit ] As was all of Manhattan Island, the area now known as the Lower East Side was occupied by members of the Lenape tribe, who were organized in bands which moved from place to place according to the seasons, fishing on the rivers in the summer, and moving inland in the fall and winter to gather crops and hunt for food. Their main trail took approximately the route of Broadway. Around these farms were a number of enclaves of free or “half-free” Africans, which served as a buffer between the Dutch and the Native Americans. One of the largest of these was located along the modern Bowery between Prince Street and Astor Place. On the modern map of Manhattan, the Delancey farm [16] is represented in the grid of streets from Division Street north to Houston Street. A spacious projected Delancey Square—intended to cover the area within today’s Eldridge, Essex, Hester and Broome Streets—was eliminated when the loyalist Delancey family’s property was confiscated after the American Revolution.

I’ve had my heart marred by the son of a Middle Eastern mogul, been duped by a handful of Hollywood’s finest college dropouts and have made painstakingly boring conversation with USC Marshall School of Business’ best and brightest.

This space is devoted to the art of cocktails, cocktail education, and the rebirth of classic cocktails. Thursday, October 20 Manhattan All this time I’ve been posting and I just came to realize that I have never written about my favorite, the Manhattan. What can you say about the Manhattan except that it is a fundamental standard classic cocktail that when all is said and done is probably in the top five of nearly all cocktailians.

The silky smooth texture of a chilled Manhattan flows over the tongue filling the mouth with flavors that is greater than the sum of its ingredients. The blend of the charred oak, spiciness, of Bourbon; the sweet, herbal, and slight caramel flavor of Sweet Vermouth; and the indescribable flavor of bitters combine to make a cocktail like none other. The Manhattan was first made with American Rye whiskey and is said to have been invented in New York’s Manhattan Club in at the request of Winston Churchill’s mother, Lady Randolph Churchill Jennie, pictured right , to celebrate the newly elected governor Samuel J.

The Manhattan’s whiskey changed from Rye to Bourbon during or shortly after the time of prohibition when the production of Rye whiskey was scarce or non-existent. After the glorious repel of the Eighteenth Amendment bars wanted to serve American whiskey again but Rye was unavailable due to the distilleries being shutdown and its long aging process. Bourbon distilleries were able to get back up to production faster and distribute their product by way of the Mississippi river and thus Bourbon found its way into the Manhattan.

Some say Bourbon distilleries never stopped producing and sold by prescription from doctors to stay in business. Over a million gallons of whiskey was consumed each year during prohibition for “medicinal purposes.
