"Down by the River . . ."

Stuyvesant Loop East is the furthest loop over in the housing complex, Stuyvesant Town. This complex is so massive, it actually got its own neighborhood name. There are thousands of people living here in buildings that look like tenements from the outside but are massive, recently remodeled units on the inside. They're really nice apartments, and yes, they are pretty pricey, but the size is pretty amazing for Manhattan. This particular loop leading to the eastern block of buildings is the least desirable so the cheapest apartments in the complex are here. The reason it's the least desirable is because it's pretty far away from everything . . aka no man's land. Transportation is quite a hike from this far over and the closest train to you is the L three avenues away (and the L only goes east to west). It's also really quiet over here so it's pretty spooky at night. And, getting to a bar or restaurant isn't exactly 20 steps and a lot of New Yorkers find that to be a massive pain. It's not a bad part of Stuy Town, but it definitely has the least attractive features. But, then again, it's quieter than the other loops so it really just depends on what you're looking for if you want to live in Stuy Town at all.

"historic Stuyvesant Town"

Stuyvesant Town is a historic post-war housing project that was recently renovated into some very nice apartments. Avenue C Loop runs through the east side of Stuyvesant Town. This housing development is in a quiet, beautiful park-like setting so that you don't feel like you are in downtown Manhattan. This seemed to be a very pleasant place to live, fairly expensive but not any more so than the rest of Manhattan.
