Stanton Street

Stanton Street is a west-to-east street in the New York City borough of Manhattan, in the neighborhood of the Lower East Side. It begins at the Bowery at the corner of the infamous Sunshine Motel. This three-lane street, with a bike lane, a parking lane, and a through lane, is one block north of Rivington Street and one block south of Houston Street. Automotive traffic runs eastward to Pitt Street, after which it dead-ends into a pedestrian pathway.


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, led by the Stanton Street Synagogue, Congregation Bnai Jacob Anshei Brzezan.

The street was once home to Lady Gaga before her rise to fame.

In popular culture

The street is mentioned in the Bruce Springsteen song Stolen Car from his album The River.
