The whole idea about slipping into a hidden speakeasy from the prohibition era is brought to life here. You can't walk down the street and decide to have a beer there. On a quiet night you could eat at the hot dog shop and never...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
