ON the Lower East Side

  • August 1, 2003, 4:15am

The reason is because of the reference to a 'side', in this case the side of the island of Manhattan. Sides are 2-dimentional and therefore you cannot be 'in' a side, only 'on' it. If this area of Manhattan had been named the Lower East Corner, then you could be 'in' it. It is a only because New Yorkers termed the LES as including an area inside the shoreline that this anomaly exists.
