Descriptions of 515 E 12th St

Lower East Side which was traditionally known as an immigrant, working-class neighborhood has grown dramatically and is now known for its restaurants, its upscale boutiques and its trendy cafes. As stylish as it is, the East Village preserves a laid-back attitude so even outsiders feel welcome when in this classic New York City neighborhood. The East Village is a lively neighborhood with a mix of many cultures, students, artists, and young professionals. This is truly a great place in an incredible neighborhood, and is probably exactly what you're looking for. Hossein Abadi (Mar 2014)

Seconds from Union Square Walk to NYU, The New School and anywhere else downtown your feet take you it's all right outside your front door. Laurie Nesbitt (Feb 2014)
Pease be willing to add a guarantor if you do not make 40x the amount of rent per month, or willing to pay extra security. Ethan Sprague (Aug 2012)
Walking distance to all buses, trains, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, gyms, dry cleaners, night life, and so much more. Ultra-convenient location near the L train on 1st and 14th Street connecting to all Manhattan Subway lines. Excellent location on E 9th and Avenue A right in the heart of East Village, close to everything. Kevin McGraw (Feb 2012)
