About the Neighborhood

Like many parts of New York—and indeed, many New Yorkers—the East Village has lived many lives. It was an expanse of the Lower East Side; its higgledy-piggledy walk-ups housed various beatniks (like Allen Ginsburg, who lived on East 12th Street for 20-odd years); and it birthed an arm of the punk rock movement as Joan Jett and The Ramones cultivated a counter-culture out of CBGB. Million-dollar starter homes prove it’s come a long way, but there’s still a special sort of buzz about this side of the city, where there’s always room for artists and thinkers—and increasingly, food lovers: It’s hard to choose between the likes of Momofuku’s noodles, cakes and pork buns and Artichoke Pizza’s creamy, cheesy pies.
