"Cool street with a lot to do"

There's a weird convenience store called M2M right on the corner of 11th and 3rd. I always want to go in there and see what they sell, but every time I walk past it, I think, "ehhhh, next time." I still have no idea if it's a deli, a grocery store, a health food store . . . .I just don't know. There's a really pretty garden just behind the M2M and the rest of the block is taken up by St Marks in the Bowery Church which I talk about in the E 10th street writeup. It's my favorite church. It's one of the oldest buildings in the city and it is really beautiful. They often have poetry readings, dance events and classical music concerts on the weekends which I highly recommend.
The next block has some great old, sort of run down buildings that are pretty unique to the East Village and the Lower East Side. There's a garage at 310 that used to be a garage for horses which I find amusing. Across the street from that is a great little dumpling spot. If you can't make it to Chinatown, this one is the place to be for dumplings. Most of the buildings on this street have great little boutiques and consignment stores on the ground floor. But, there is an actual restaurant on the block called Veneiro's though they are most well known for their dessert. So, it's more of an after - dinner restaurant. The block between 1st and A is a bizarre mish mosh of shops, a school, a garden, apartments . .. you name it. And, all the shops are the mom and pop kind that are specialty stores. One of them only sells tiles. . . that sort of thing. The end of the block does have Westville East, however. Westville in the West Village is one of my favorite lunch spots. This one is exactly the same just with more hipsters in it.
The block between A and B has a ton of small, great bars. Bar on A, Angels and Kings and 11th street bar are all within 50 feet of each other and they're all really fun. There's a building on the other side of 11th that used to be a bath house and is now apartments. I feel like it would so weird to live in a building like that but it's probably really cool inside. It's gorgeous on the outside and it definitely looks like a bath house.
East 11th is a really hip street (weirdly, it's where all the cocaine dealers in the city used to live but definitely don't anymore). It's not great as far as transportation but it's a very walkable street and there's tons to do. I would live on 11th and a lot of my friends live quite close by.
