East Village, New York City
(4/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
East Village is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan. Its boundary to the north is Gramercy Park and Stuyvesant Town, to the south by the Lower East Side, and to the east by the East River. Generally, although definitions vary on the neighborhood's exact street boundaries, the East Village is considered to be the area east of Broadway to the East River, between 14th Street and Houston Street.The area was once generally considered to be part of the Lower East Side, but began to develop its own identity and culture in the late 1960s, when many artists, musicians, students and hippies began to move into the area, attracted by cheap rents and the base of Beatniks who had lived there since the 1950s. The neighborhood has become a center of the counterculture in New York, and is known as the birthplace and historical home of many artistic movements, including punk rock and the Nuyorican literary movement. It has also been the site of protests and riots.

  • Whatever happened in the world, New York has happened before, and the juice of this sentence is located in the East Village. The true story of punk, raw and edgy of NY are here, among the shops of tattooists and the fire stairs corroded by rust. A stop is required. follow the suggested route from Lonely Planet, you won't regret it.

  • Located in the Southeast neighborhood of Manhattan that does not have many attractions, in addition to touring its residential streets and enjoy some of the restaurants and bars with prices more into account. Will be the next destination for real estate speculation and revitalization.
