East village houses bit old buildings, restaurants, and shopping outlets. This place is good for strolling. Bit dirty in comparison with other neighborhood.

This part of NYC has such nostalgic restaurants, stores and bars. Lots of murals and architecture to see is this section of lower Manhattan. Traffic can be cumbersome at times, but what do you expect, it's New York. Stopped near Phebes bar on the Bowery...More

There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
