East Village


Food: Sweet Spot

Every time I go to the East Village I always feel like I am stepping back in time a bit, in a good way. There’s Moishe’s Kosher Bake Shop on 2nd Avenue which offers all the sweet treats from my childhood: rugelach, babka, sponge cake, strudel, almond horns, black and white cookies, hamentashen, you name it!



A street dedicated to Charlie Parker, the legendary alto saxophonist, who lived at 151 Avenue B in Thompkins Square from 1950-1954.

Community Gardens


The community garden movement in NYC is alive and well in Lower Manhattan! What was started by the Green Guerillas and Liz Christy in the 70s to counteract urban decay is now in the hands of NYRP and Bette Midler.
