- New Developments
Located North of Houston and South of 14th Street, the East Village has more of a "downtown" bohemian street style than its West-side counterpart—most in evidence on St. Marks Place (Eighth Street between Second Avenue and Avenue A), and buildings here are typically older generation tenement-style apartments. Though iconic clubs like CBGB and Electric Circus have closed, the neighborhood was home to its punk, rock, and jazz musician and artist denizens for decades. The easternmost section was long known as Alphabet City (for Avenues A-D), and you can still find in it some of the old East Village flavor as longtime residents, old- and new-school bohemians, NYU students and young professionals drink and dine side by side in the area's many restaurants and bars.
Prices tend to be a bit lower toward the river, though development has been steady for some time. Tiny storefronts offering great treats compete with fine restaurants on the neighborhood's narrow, tree-lined streets, which are also lined with chic boutiques, cafes and quirky vintage shops. Tompkins Square Park, despite a past history of riots and drugs, is one of the City's loveliest, with a well-loved dog run that brings pups and their owners from the surrounding streets and beyond. As with all far-east-side neighborhoods, subways are a bit scarce: The F at First Avenue and the 4, 5, 6 subway lines are a ten-minute walk in some cases, though city buses run regularly on the avenues.
