The East Village is located North of Houston, South of 14th Street and east of Broadway. Most of the available apartments are in pre-war walk-up buildings, many of which have been recently refurbished. In the good old days, this was the home of squatters, punks, hippies and bikers. The influences of New York University (NYU) and the general surge in Manhattan incomes have transformed it into the home of students, artists and entrepreneurs. As a direct consequence, the East Village has seen the opening of hundreds of boutiques, art galleries, bars and restaurants. The main strips are St. Marks Place and Second Avenue. As stylish as it is, the East Village preserves a laid-back attitude, so even outsiders feel welcome when in this classic New York City neighborhood. An interesting subsection to the East Village is Alphabet City, named after avenues A thru D. Apartments here are generally less expensive than the rest of the area because of the longer distance to the subway lines.
