The East Village stretches from 1st to 14th Streets on the east side. It offers a dynamic mix; part ethnic, part punk rock, part h high-style, part cutting-edge. It is still, incredibly, a true village with a strong sense of community and an active political base. With its history of free spirits, there’s a certain sense of ‘cool’ here that gives the East Village a young, edgy feel. Spiked hair punkers and young urban professional alike are proud to call it home.
- St. Mark’s Place is the heart and soul of the neighborhood, great for people watching.
- Broadway is lined with intriguing shops and intricate ironwork facades. You’ll find everything from vintage clothing and music to ethnic treasures.
- New York University and Cooper Union are the cultural anchors.
- The large student population, plus youth culture clubs and boutiques, give the area an energized, Left Bank feel.
- Further east, Alphabet City (Avenues A, B, C and D) is home to Ukrainian, Polish and Hispanic communities and some great ethnic restaurants.
- Head south to the Lower East Side, one of New York’s hottest places to shop and dine.
- It’s also home to some of New York’s trendiest hotels, including the W and Hudson Hotels.
The East Village places you between two of the city’s key subway hubs. To the south is the Broadway-Lafayette station; to the north at 14th Street is Union Square. Both can take you virtually anywhere throughout Manhattan.
If you thrive on interesting people and edgy nightlife, the East Village is perfect for you. You’ll truly find inspired individualist and a great variety of neighborhood hangouts in which to meet them. To work on Wall Street and live in the East Village is like visiting two different cities each day. The neighborhood’s street life is a cultural mosh pit that never gets boring.
Quality living. Good value. Great locations.
