East Village

East Village

East Village has that sort of small town gritty feel to it. Did you know that the American punk rock was born here? It sure was, but that was a long time ago now. But East Village still boasts that relaxed, bohemian atmosphere.

Nearby SoHo is a totally different world with its trendy boutiques and restaurants.

In the heart of East Village, everything is more relaxed, simple and inexpensive – it is evident that the area caters for a younger crowd.

St. Marks Place, with its special shops and live music scene, is the most famous place in East Village.

Sometimes it is a relief not being surrounded by retail chain stores and browse through independent eclectic shops with odd bits and pieces instead of the usual selection of well known brands.

East Village borders on Bowery, one of New York’s eldest and most interesting streets that still has that industrial feel to it.

Two of my favorite hotels are at Bowery – The Bowery and The Standard East Village.

Make sure you don’t miss the outdoor market ‘The Bowery Market’ with its many cool small restaurants.

If you choose to stay in East Village you will be close to Union Square, SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown and Lower East Side.
