Lying east of Greenwich Village, south of Gramercy and north of the Lower East Side, and encompassing the neighborhoods of Alphabet City and NoHo, the East Village is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the borough of Manhattan.

Notably, the East Village is home to the legendary music club CBGB where groups such as Television and the Ramones contributed to the genesis of what would become the punk movement.
