"Average but interesting"

East 10th Street, especially below Avenue A, can be noisy as it is one of the only two way East-West streets in the neighborhood, between Houston and 14th Street. Trucks, buses, and emergency vehicles make heavy use of it. Some parts of East 10th are mostly residential, and pleasant to walk down. However, traffic remains an issue and there are better blocks to walk east or west on nearby.

"If You Like to Eat - You'll Love East 10th"

Honestly, I don't remember any type of fellowshipping with neighbors and what not when I visited on this street. I do remember the food! There are restaurants up and down the street from all parts of the world. It is a relatively busy street for those seeking peace and quiet.

There is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful library on this street that I would always visit when in town. Grace Church is a beautiful old church to visit. There are also a number of college dorms along this street - so there is definitely a nightlife, when needed.

"Pretty quiet, though it intersects with some busy streets"

I used to live on this street during my lovely stay at NYU, and the first thing that comes to mind is the smell of dog pee in the summer time. (Of course, fowl smells are pretty inescapable anywhere in the city during the summer.) However, the street and the buildings on it are beautiful – and there are actually trees lining the street on some blocks. It is a relatively quiet place to live.

"Nice on the west end of the street, gets seedy as you move east"

I lived on E 10th Street and 5th Avenue for a year and found it to be a great place to live in New York. The street is very residential - it's mainly lined with brownstones and apartment buildings. There is a great Thai restaurant on the corner of University Place – one of my favorites in the city. Unfortunately, other than that there aren’t really any businesses or restaurants on the street, but there is plenty in the area. Fifth Avenue has plenty of shopping just a few blocks away, and Broadway also has a lot of stores. Third Avenue and Tenth Street has plenty of bars and nightlife, but as you go further east, the neighborhood gets a bit seedy (as is often the case as you go deeper into the East Village). Overall, the west side of East 10th Street is great, but be wary the further you move east.

"East 10th Street"

I enjoyed this street and its flavor. As a kid growing up n the midwest, I always envisioned the summer in the big city to be filled with fun ad this street was my 9 year-old inner self coming true! Kids actually played stickball here and I was just waiting for one of them to break open the fire hydrant! For night activity, try the Dessert Bar for something sweet, or Plan B for a sour Martini when your Plan A fails. This street is also close to Tompkins Square Park!

East 10th is close to the following metro and is accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is moderate, and it is a good neighborhood for young people!!
