"The East Village is no longer just for kids."

- AmazonGirl
East 9th Street is a busy street with a smart collection of boutiques, and no longer portrays that the East Village area is "just for kids." The quality and originality of fashion in this area is exce...

St Marks Pl

Ranked 8th best street in East Village

"Lively street that's fun for pretty much everyone"

- JenMac
St. Marks kind of gets a bad rap, and while some of it is well deserved, it still is a really cool street. Yeah, it's always loud and jam-packed. Yeah, it's dirty with a lot of crummy stores and scr...

Avenue B

Ranked 9th best street in East Village

"Huge mix of elements for one street which is great"
