I loved hanging out in the East Village when I was a New Yorker, a little too much for the good of my wallet. Be that as it may, I have fond memories of my twenties spent in the various bars and restaurants of this New York neighborhood, bemoaning the days when the East Village was REALLY cool, which was, inevitably, just before we had been old enough to move to New York.

So much good Asian foods - Yakitori, Ramen, Sushi, Korean BBQ, you name it and they have it. Always buzzling at nighttime filled with students and friends, there might be a wait at dinner time but the turnaround time is incredible, the atmosphere is really very New York and the foods are unique and delicious. Sometimes we are still hungry after dinner, we come here for some delicious yakitori skewers for $15 for 10. Love it!

The East Village is easily my favorite part of Manhattan - both grungy and trendy at the same time, it's a great place to take a stroll on a late spring day, find a new and cool place to eat, check out a bar with friends, or window shop at funky boutique shops. The street art scene is also a major plus.

The East Village can feel gritty and collegiate but it is a bastion of good restaurants and bars. It is more difficult to reach and doesn't have the architectural charm of Soho or the West Village, but should be high on the list for anyone interested in food and nightlife. Full of mom and pop options and creativity. This is the are to seek out a good speakeasy or value priced restaurant with great food and ambience.

When I want to feel the grittier, more punk rock and alternative side of Manhattan, I visit the East Village. The best ethnic restaurants (one after the other Indian, Ethiopian on 6th Street) can be found here. St. Marks used to be a very dangerous area but it has been cleaned up and a vibrant cultural life thrives here. Bohemian, rock and roll and a rawer side of NYC is what makes up the East Village.

NY's East Village is packed with nightlife in terms of bars, restaurants, music, and bohemian urban culture. Stroll down St. Mark's Place for tattoo parlors and t-shirts, hang out in historic Tompkins Square Park, shoot pool in Ace Bar on 5th between Avenues A & B, or check out the row of great Indian restaurants on 6th street.
