"Great weekend spot"

While much of the East Village has undergone major gentrification in the last few years, the eastern part of Alphabet City still very much resembles the neighborhood from around the time of Rent. It'...

"Most convenient part of Stuy Town"

- JenMac
Of all of the Stuy Town loops, the West one is probably the most convenient. It faces out to first avenue, so the L train is right at 14th and the green line is just an avenue over. None of the othe...

"Just a bunch of walkways through a housing complex"

- JenMac
I'm kind of at a loss for what to say about the Stuy Walks . . because they're just walkways extending from the center of the residential complex out to the different buildings. This is a massive hou...

Ranked 6th best street in Stuyvesant Town

"Huge apartments in tenement buildings"

"The crowded loop"

- JenMac
Stuy Loop South is the southern tip of the Stuy Town Residential Complex. This is the loop where all the action is happening which can be a good or bad thing depending on what you like. It's not as...

"Huge apartments in a weird area"

- JenMac
The corner of 1st and 23rd commences the beginning of Peter Cooper Village. PCV is owned by the same company that owns Stuy Town and the complexes are very similar. The difference is that Peter Coop...

"Not the most exciting street in the city. "

- JenMac
East 15th isn't the best street downtown by any stretch of the imagination. But, it's aesthetically pleasing and there are some things to do. The corner of 15th and Union Square is where e.e. Cummin...

East 16 St

2.5/5

"Not a lot of street with not a lot on it."

- JenMac
16th gets a little squirrely just before Stuy Town so there isn't really much to say about it . . . because there isn't much street. It stops at Stuyvesant Square which is a little park that doesn't...

"Apartments"

- JenMac
There's not much to talk about in regards to 20th street in Stuy Town. It only runs a few blocks and the majority of the street is taken up by the Stuy Town complex. 20th at 2nd holds a park on both...

"The place to be for big apartment complexes"

- JenMac
23rd in Stuy Town is really all about the apartment complex. There are a few things at 2nd like a synagogue, a cafe and a bar; but, there is a different residential unit every three feet right here....

"Really busy street with little to offer"

- JenMac
FDR Drive is not a street I would recommend living on. FDR is a major thoroughfare on the outside of the city. People fly down up and down this thing like it's a freeway. And the buildings on the w...
