Live in East Village

Parameters: The East Village is roughly defined as the neighborhood east of the Bowery and Third Avenue, between 14th Street on the north, and Houston Street on the south.

The East Village, as well as the Lower East Side, has a rich history of social activism and remains one of New York City’s (and the country’s) most storied neighborhoods. It is synonymous with the immigrant experience.

By the 1980s the rise of the art scene in East Village revived the real estate market in the neighborhood. Patti Astor and Bill Sterling opened the pioneering FUN Gallery in 1981 on East 11th Street, a few blocks northeast of the historic district, where they exhibited the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Harin, and Kenny Scarf.

About 100 galleries were scattered throughout the neighborhood. The most famous was International with Monument, located at 111 East 7th Street which opened in 1983 and launched the career of Jeff Koons. The art scene in the East Village was short lived as the rents increased and many galleries went out of business or moved to SoHo.

With rents soaring, people still flock to the East Village which has “everything you can hope to eat” as well as “everything you can hope to do.” From craft-roasted beans for coffee in the wee hours of the morning to late night shakes and tapas bars with plates meant for sharing -- the neighborhood can be summed up in one word: Vibrant.

The architecture is comprised of rustic apartment buildings featuring Greek Revival or early tenement style to new luxury high rises along tree-lined streets. Old and new share the streets. Both in old traditions and in contemporary concepts.

Living in the East Village is convenient. You can walk or CitiBike your way to any other neighborhood downtown and it is close enough that getting to any other neighborhood is a train hop away.

The area is popular with the tech crowd and has plenty of Facebook’s staff setting up residence here. There are lots of outdoor spaces like community gardens and parks along with top notch nightlife for the young or the “young-at-heart” crowd.

Once you have lived in the East Village you will be forever enamored by the echoes of what East Village was and the sophisticated enclave it has become.
