About East Village
Once considered part of lower Manhattan, this famous New York City Borough became famous during the 1960's when the residents wanted to disassociate their area from the slums in the lower East side. From this came the high brow name now used to refer to this part of New York--the East Village. In the 1800's it was part of the Dutch Governor's family for seven generations. Once it was sold off to investors through the years, it became home to incoming immigrants from around the world. In the 1960s it was part of the hippie, political dissident, and beatnik movements. Now East Village is home to students and young professionals. New York University and Cooper Union Art School are part of the landscape here.
This very Bohemian area is home to different neighborhoods such as Alphabet City, Losaida, St. Mark's Place, and The Bowery. Each one has fallen into and out of fashion throughout history. Today, it is very fashionable to be part of the East Village scene--a place to see and be seen. In Alphabet City, there are housing projects with thousands but the fashionable scene is moving its way towards the river. Soon, there will be high rise condominiums with views of the river that sell for millions. And this area will regain its fashionable address once again.

This is the best of the best and a must try when in NY. It is a local and visitor favorite and you will love every last drop!
Pros: Fantastic flavors, artfully presented. It is amazing what happens in this fast paced contemporary noodle bar. Must try - you will love!
Cons: Long wait - but chill out and check out the dessert bakery nearby and take a walk around the 'hood.
I never miss a show at this great comedy spot. If you love improv this is a must do in NYC. And the ticket price is a great value. My friends and I love to visit every time we are in NYC!
Pros: Fun up and coming comedians, great improv, affordable tickets.

New York has a ton of bars but one of my favorite is Coyote Ugly! Mainly because it’s your casual, fun let loose kinda bar.
Pros: The staff is just always ready to entertain whether it’s 2 people at the bar or a packed house!
Cons: Smaller bar than you would expect for a place that has a self titled movie!
