EAST VILLAGE (East 14th Street to Houston Street, Fourth Avenue to the East River)

If you do not want to cross Delancey or the Williamsburg Bridge, the East Village is the place to be. It was once a Dutch governor's farm and traditionally part of the Lower East Side until the 1960s when The New York Times referred to the area from 14th to Houston as the East Village. The housing stock ranges from townhouse to tenement to fabulous newly developed luxury condominiums in the formerly fear-inducing sub section of the EV called Alphabet City. Yes, the land of "Die Yuppie Scum" has been gentrified with relatively (to other downtown neighborhoods) affordable co-op and condo prices for a place both old timers and newcomers rate as a lovely, lively highly livable area. Now home to three distinct NYC designated Historic Districts, there is an abundance of air and light in this still predominantly low-rise precinct. The presence of Cooper Union and NYU, both incubating the artists of tomorrow ensure a youthful countenance.
