The East Village is located North of Houston and South of 14th Street. The buildings in this neighborhood stay on the small side and are typically made up of older generation walk-ups. The East Village has more of the real bohemian feel and style than the West Village does. Many of the stores are music
related. The main strip is St. Marks Place
and Second Avenue.
A sub-section to the East Village is Alphabet City (named so because it is set between avenues A-D)-its just like East Village, only more so. Apartments here are generally less expensive than in the rest of the area, though rents in East Village have stayed on the moderate side for sometime now.
