The East Village is home to a very much eclectic group. Also a stomping ground for New York University students. For the most part, apartment buildings in the East Village are low-rise and pre-war units, although luxury buildings are starting exist however they are not widespread. Whether you prefer indian eats and live sitar music or potato latkes and stories of the old neighborhood, you've got plenty of options. Because the area also has a slew of far-out nightclubs, music venues, bars and funky shops, the most number of 24hr kitchens is higher than most in most neighborhoods around the city. Points of interest include Angelika's Kitchen, Tompkins Square park and shopping on St.Marks Place.
