Stanton Street

Stanton Street

Stanton Street is a West-to-East running street in the New York City borough of Manhattan, in the neighborhood of the Lower East Side. It begins at Bowery, one block south of Houston Street at the corner of the infamous Sunshine Motel. This one lane street is one block north of Rivington Street and traffic flows from West to East.

Stanton then runs to Chrystie Street where it is interrupted by Sara Delano Roosevelt Park. The east border of the park is Forsyth Street where Stanton picks back up, as it then proceeds to intersect with Eldridge Street, Allen Street, Ludlow Street, Essex Street, Norfolk Street, Suffolk Street, Clinton Street, Attorney Street, Ridge Street, and reaches its terminus at Pitt Street.


The street also includes a settlement house based on the ideas that Jane Addams brought from the settlement movement in England that won her a Nobel Prize in 1931. Founded in 1999, the Stanton Street Settlement is active in the community through volunteer work.

The site of the second African burial ground in New York lies between Stanton and Rivington Streets, now a playground in the Sara D. Roosevelt Park. The M'Finda Kalunga community garden is also at this location.

The Lower East Side, once known for its large Jewish community of German and Eastern European Jews before an influx of newer immigrants, is beginning to see a slight resurgence in the Jewish character of the neighborhood, lead by the Stanton Street Shul, Congregation Bnai Jacob Anschei Brzezan.
