Division Street (Manhattan)

Division Street is a one-way street in the Lower East Side of the New York City borough of Manhattan. It runs in a northeasterly direction with westbound traffic and passes beneath the Manhattan Bridge. It begins at the intersection of Canal Street and Ludlow Street and runs westward to Bowery.

It is mostly residential, and largely runs within the Chinatown neighborhood.

A segment of the IRT Second Avenue Line used to run along Division Street between the Bowery and Allen Street.[1]

The portion of Division Street under the Manhattan Bridge is used for a mall called the East Broadway Mall. There is a car park at Market Street (formerly Florence Place[2]) and next to it is the PS 124 Yung Wing Elementary School. The school is part of a residential complex called Confucius Plaza. At this point, the street widens. Buses to Flushing and casinos park on the right side. There used to be a greenmarket until it moved to the space under the Manhattan Bridge on Forsyth Street between Canal Street and Division Street. East of Bowery, there is a statue of Confucius. At Bowery, most of the traffic gets diverted to the Bowery, Chatham Square, and the Manhattan Bridge.
