400 Years On NYC's Oldest StreetThe Bowery - its broad, crooked arc first traversed on foot by Native Americans over unknown centuries - remains New York City's oldest thoroughfare and one of the world's few streets whose name evokes meaning beyond a mere place on a map. Stretching 1.25 miles from Chatham Square to Cooper Square, 400 years of Euro-American history make the Bowery undisputedly the city's most architecturally diverse & historically significant streetscape, with building representing every decade since 1780.
