Elizabeth St Between Kenmare St and Grand St

   

Lined with small shops and apartments alike, this narrow street packs quite a bit into a small space. It's certainly not a block you'd find in any tour guide. It doesn't offer anything groundbreaking, and seeing as it's just a few steps away from other tourist-friendly areas, there'd be little reason to visit here.

The feeling down here is rather authentic. The stores are a hodgepodge of different services, none of which are chains. The apartments look cramped and vary in quality. a few places on the east side of the block have some flashy and kitschy exteriors, but they're in the minority.
