Found myself quite attracted to the multitude of restaurants, bars & vintage shopping found all along the street. Maybe not as jaded as other travellers/commentators but I truly enjoyed walking around the street daily as I head back to my rented room just 5 mins away ...

Not really the most exciting or prettiest square in the city as it is predominantly dominated by huge glass office buildings. The small shops and bookstore nearby are nice, but the square itself is not really noteworthy. I wouldn't make it a dedicated journey unless already nearby.

We stayed in an apartment on East 9th Street so only 2 blocks away from St Mark's Place. It is a lovely neighbourhood and not touristy at all. There are wonderfull vintage shops, cosy bars, lovely restaurants. We even found a comic book store and felt like we were in "The big bang theory".

OK, I don't think you can honestly speak about the East Village being a bohemian neighborhood anymore - it's more like a Hallmark Card version of bohemia, or whatever you would consider to be a very expensive Hallmark Card... but, anyway, St. Mark's Place is the fulcrum, the center of the East Village and the pathway into an experience of...

For those of you that don't know, these buildings are the ones shown on the cover of the Led Zeppelin album Physical Graffiti... So it's a must for all rock fans to see a piece of rock history.

We visited Gothic Rensissance in St Mark's. A shop for those people who like to dress a little differently. They had everything from clothing to footwear to rings and headwear with a halloween speciality shop next door. Worth while taking a look!

Our apartment was around the corner form this street we spent our days, nights here. Great bars, cafes, restaurants. From japanese, morrocon eggs, vietnamese baguettes transformed into cool hangouts for locals - cocktail lounges/bars at night. During the day there are skaters inhabiting the street - at night writers, hipsters love this place. Check it out day and night.

I love Saint Marks place for it's funkiness, eclectic vibe and unique finds and highly recommend it to take teenagers to, as they will have a blast checking out everything from rocker wear, cool cheap eats and crazy sightings of Mohawks and colorful hair. Clothes are a little pricey for what they are at times, but Trash has a great... More

A cool little street in the East Village. The most notable shop is Trash and Vaudeville. The upstairs is Vaudevill and full of rocker clothing such as Tripp and Lip Service, as well as accessories such as hats and ties and bags. Downstairs is Trash, where you''ll find band tees, rocker shoes, stud belts, and jewelry. Jimmy Webb and his... More

Nyc's Camden Town on a smaller scale. Several piercing and tattoo parlours, some good stores however mainly stocking mainstream and European brands. Severe lack of lucky 13. But anyone looking to pick up a pair of sha-sha's or New rocks - you're in the right place. Not much opens till early afternoon.
