Real estate prices in the East Village are constantly rising, as they are in the rest of Manhattan -- but unlike other parts of the city where gentrification is taking a toll, this downtown nabe's authenticity is still thriving.
Historically home to Bohemian artists, musicians and students, the East Village is particularly attractive to young people, which is made evident by the plethora of coffee shops and bars on every avenue. But locals say that, most of all, the East Village is a haven for artists.
