Neighborhoods: These are the neighborhoods that I most commonly frequent.

  • East Village – EV/EVILL – Home to many college kids and people who never moved away in the 80’s, the EV is great place to hang out. Tons of cool bars, old rock n roll joints and some of the best-hidden food spots. Further East is ABC City – alphabet city got it’s name because the avenues go from 3, 2,1 to A,B,C, etc.
  • West Village – WV – Known as the Gay Pride area of NY, it has more of an artsy scene to it. Lots of cute boutique shops and just south of the Meatpacking District. I love this part of the city.
  • Meatpacking – Known to be an exclusive scene for celebrities, this area known as the Gansevoort Hotel District, is a great place if you’re looking to shop for designer items or go clubbing.
  • LES – Lower East Side – Bordered by Chinatown and Nolita, this neighborhood is known for its art scene and its many live concert venues.
  • Nolita – North of Little Italy – A largely Italian neighborhood. Lots of great Italian restaurants.
  • NoHo – North of Houston. NYU is located here (also located in Greenwich Village)
  • SoHo – South of Houston. Great shopping along Broadway and down Prince St.
  • Chinatown – Canal street is the place to go for some faux designer items, but watch your bags!
  • TriBeCa – Triangle Below Canal Street – Older scene, super expensive, but very trendy area.
  • Flat Iron District – Got it’s name from the flat iron building. Also known for Eataly, Mario Balotelli’s delicious Italian marketplace.
