"Why come here . . ."

The nicest thing I have to say about East 5th Walk is that it's not the hub of heroin dealing for New York City anymore . . . that I'm aware of. It still looks like it though. Like East 4th Walk, East 5th Walk is comprised of housing projects in its entirety. Though the East Village is starting to get a lot hipper east of 1st Avenue, once you get past Avenue C, it's still really sketchy. All you really find around Ave D are housing projects and places like Con Ed and Bellevue. There are no bars and no restaurants and really no people out -- at least not, generally, the kind of people you want to run into when you're alone at night. I'll give them credit for trying make the housing project look nice so it has quite a lot of green which is rare for this part of town. But, the building is just so obviously a project that it really takes away any tranquil feeling a pedestrian might have while walking through it. There's really no reason to be here if you don't have to, so I would suggest steering clear of this block.
