Downtown on the East Side, from Houston to 14th Street and from the Bowery and Third Avenue to the East River.
Whether it’s the mushrooming of modern new condos or the reclamation of some beloved parks, few neighborhoods have changed as much over the past couple of decades as the East Village. The growth of New York University to the West has helped drive the East Village’s renaissance, so that old-fashioned retail like hardware stores stands cheek-by-jowl with shops where you can buy all kinds of trendy luxury. Much of the East Village housing stock is tenement-style walkups with co-ops for sale or rentals that make great shares, but some offer hidden delights like roof decks and garden access to their residents. If it’s an elevator and a Bulthaup kitchen you’re seeking, head over near Avenue B to check out the jazzy new condo developments.
