If I was to live in Manhattan, this is the area I would choose. East Village. St. Mark's is where all of the punk bands found themselves. Tons of clothing stores and shops in St. Mark's Place.

We were told to check out East Village by a friend who lives in Brooklyn. It was one of my favorite parts of Manhattan! We are in our early twenties and loved the really vibrant streets, full of quirky shops, market stalls, restaurants, hookah bars and regular bars! There are also lots of tattoo parlors if you are thinking about... More

As a native NYer there are few areas I have not either worked in or explored. I have been to St. Mark's Pl. at every stage of my life, yet even now as a grandma I absolutely loved it once again. It's just a few blocks from the #6 (Lexington Ave. line) with fabulous buildings to look at along the... More

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.
