East Village

The East Village is a neighborhood in the downtown section of Manhattan in New York City. It lies east of Greenwich Village, south of Gramercy and north of the Lower East Side. The East Village encompasses the neighborhood of Alphabet City (Avenues A - D). The neighborhood is bounded by 14th Street on the north, Avenue D on the east, Houston Street on the south, and the Bowery and 3rd Avenue on the west.

Over the last few years the East Village has gone through some pretty dramatic transformations as a result of NYU?s never ending expansion which in turn has sparked major renovations of older properties in the neighborhood. Despite the transformation, the East Village still remains one of the most affordable downtown locations. As a result, the neighborhood is filled with inexpensive bars and food options that cater to the students and young professionals that frequent them.

Other than geography, the East Village's most notable commonalities with Greenwich Village are a colorful history, vibrant social and cultural outlets, and street names that often diverge from the norm. Some notable examples are the Bowery, a north-south avenue which also lends its name to the somewhat overlapping neighborhood of the Bowery; St. Mark's Place, a cross-town street well-known for counterculture businesses; and Astor Place/Cooper Square, home of the Public Theater and the Cooper Union. Nearby universities like New York University (NYU) and The New School have dormitories in the neighborhood.

Over the last 100 years, the East Village has been considered one of the strongest contributors to American arts and culture in New York.
