"Quiet for Alphabet City"

This is another standard Alphabet City affair – clubs and restaurants abound, though perhaps not as much as the streets further west. It is a bit more residential and unassuming compared to the rest of the neighborhood. Public housing remains on the street, but I’ve never had a problem in the area, even during late nights out.

"Too inconvenient to be worth it."

Avenue D has become a mix of a little bit of everything the Dry Dock Park and Pool offer recreational convenience and there is a rich tradition. Public Housing is common in the area which has kept some potential residents away from the area but it's a rather quiet and reserved area. The public transportation system in the area is rather lax making commuting a serious issue. It is serviced by the m14 bus, but that's about it.

"Definitiely worth a look"

I work on Avenue D every Wednesday morning at one of the neighborhood elementary schools. This area is one of the quietest of the East Village, and I think would be a wonderful place to live. At least, I can say that one school around here is good! It is easily accessible with the L at 14th street or the C and D line of the M14 bus. There isn't much foot traffic because I think most people just live here and visit other parts of the city. The buildings are low, and the skyscrapers of middle Manhattan are not that easily visible. It almost feels like a suburb. The streets are wider, and there are some pretty fun restaurants around. I love walking around here, it's a very friendly area. There is also a nice park, and it is overall quiet and relaxing.

"Avenue D is D-elighful"

This street is more calm than the rest in the village, but is nearby a lot of great places. There is a wonderful park in the neighborhood (Hamilton Fish park) to go and read a book!

The East village is one of my favorite areas and Avenue D is not an exception. So much to do, so many places to go, and great people to see. It is highly diverse, lively and filled with unique style. .

Avenue D is close to the following metro: L at 14th and is accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is moderate, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!
