Artsy? Then the East Village is for you.

Simply by walking down the streets, one can feel the difference in the vibe of the East Village versus the Upper East Side, for example. Vintage dresses, old lace-up boots, and battered brown purses accent its young inhabitants.

Descriptions of 242 East 3rd Street

Located on the GROUND FLOOR of a well-maintained walk up building, you are steps from the best of downtown, including Tompkins Square Park, Katz's Deli, Poco Lounge, Clinton Street Bakery, and much, much more. You are 2 blocks from the crosstown bus at Houston Street and about a 7 minute walk to the closest train, the F train at 2nd Avenue or B/D/M/F/6 train at Broadway/Lafayette.
