    The Bowery is a street in Manhattan, which once referred to a neighborhood known for flophouses, soup kitchens, rescue missions and other places that attracted homeless men.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

    @StevenM_61: Thanks! I knew it's a street in Manhattan, but it looked like it was the name for a certain profession. But your additional information clears that up!
