The East Village, NYC’s neighborhood located east of Bowery between Houston and 14th Streets, has become a hot spot for everything from the newest restaurants to old-school record stores. Whether you head there during the day for a picnic at one of the best NYC parks (we recommend Tompkins Square Park), shop its unique vintage clothing stores or choose one of its newly opened bars for a first date, the East Village is easy to get to from just about anywhere in Manhattan and Brooklyn (until the L train shuts down, that is).

The East Village is a buzzing hub of youthful energy and activity, boasting bookstores, cafes, galleries and beyond-hip bars, it’s both stylish and laid back. It was once the most vibrant art scene in NYC, and though it maintains those roots to date, there is a much more polished edge to the neighborhood today, complete with luxury condos, franchised coffee shops and lunch spots.
