A lot of East Village apartment renters are college graduates aspiring to be young professionals keeping the dive bar scene alive. In fact, the East Village boasts one of the highest concentration of bars in the city. New York University owns several buildings in the neighborhood, which is why many of its recent alumni often live there in an effort to extend college life just a little bit longer. Asides from being a big post-grad community, the neighborhood also lives off of its popularity from when it was a haven for artists, hippies, Beatniks and a hub for protests, riots and counterculture movements.Find East Village apartments

If you’re new to New York, don’t confuse the East Village with the The Lower East Side, which is directly to its south. The East Village is South of Stuyvesant Town, East of the NYU and bordered on the East by the East River. Within it are several smaller neighborhoods, including Alphabet City, St. Mark’s Place, Loisaida and The Bowery.
And lastly, if you’re a fan of the musical “Rent” and are looking for East Village apartments to “Rent," you’ll be happy to know that you’ll be living in the same neighborhood where the musical takes place. But, please don’t take that as permission to sing its songs aloud as you wander the neighborhood's streets with your broker.
