Today, the East Village is the epitome of New York City style, with renovated apartments and reestablished buildings featuring a thriving array of new restaurants, nightclubs and shops. The neighborhood is in the borough of Manhattan, providing residents with a great location. East Village is made up of several smaller communities, each offering its own unique feel and character. For instance, Alphabet City makes up around two-thirds of East Village.
East Village is an area that has undergone a period of great change recently. New contemporary and luxury condos have been sprouting up in East Village in great numbers. Many of these new buildings are located specifically in Bowery, a smaller neighborhood that is part of East Village. The newer condos are great for luxury living, with state-of-the-art interiors and elevators as the norm. These new condominiums not only provide excellent new living opportunities, but also an excellent chance to invest.
Still, the mainstay in this neighborhood is pre-war walk-ups, most of them under five-stories high. These walk-ups can provide good value and great investment potential to buyers. They also have a distinctly New York feel and numerous amenities, including such finds as gardens and rooftop decks. This all lends to making East Village real estate incredibly desirable amongst newcomers to the city.
The closeness of New York University to East Village also provides the neighborhood with greater economic and ethnic diversity that other neighborhoods. This makes for a unique and friendly community welcoming to all residents.
One of East Village’s draws comes in the abundance of public parks and gardens that lie within the neighborhood. Tompkins Square Park is located in the heart of East Village, and serves as the recreational center of the neighborhood. The park has been a part of East Village’s history, and is a well-established community site in the neighborhood. The East River Park has recently been revitalized with an amphitheater and a new sports field.
East Village is also hosts a range of locally owned shops that line the neighborhood’s streets. With everything from jewelry and clothing to antiques and records, these shops add to the eclectic personality of East Village.
The neighborhood does not lack evening entertainment or a vibrant nightlife, in fact when the sun goes down is when East Village truly comes alive. East Village is the neighborhood with the highest concentration of bars in New York City, ensuring that residents will never run out of places to visit. Many of these bars are authentically New York hotspots, bringing out residents from all over the city on a nightly basis. These bars, plus a range of dining options and late night clubs create the nightlife that East Village is known for.
