Air- Conditioned in summer, and 6 fans besides the A-C.. . . .and heated all night long in winter. Kitchen looks out on huge garden with several species of very beautiful trees. 4th floor, no elevator. One week rental minimum.
East Village becoming classier daily: This is a growing neighborhood, yet retaining the tradition of smaller, neighborhood run Parks, tended to by volunteers, and ambitious amateurs of gardening, each trying to out-do their neighbors. You can visit these botanical hot spots during the day and on weekends.
Restaurants of different ethnicity have sprung up all over, all new--and these are reasonable in price, and attractive in , decor.There's a little thin crust Pizza store on Avenue B that looks like an old New York candy store (Gruppo). Several French restaurants (Rue B, and 26 Seats) and Esperanto --a Brazillian place on the corner with live Brazillian Musicians often and with sidewalk tables for Brunch on Sundays.
