Sometimes called the “Coolest Neighborhood”, “Bohemian”, or “The Birthplace of Artistic Counterculture”. East Village has its own unique street style culture…a laid-back attitude rich in tradition and diversity. An endless matrix of cafes, bookshops, clubs and galleries and complemented with museums and parks. We took a walk through the neighborhood last Sunday and ate at Cafe Mogador, a Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine at Saint Mark’s Place. Afterwards, we couldn’t resist the 16+ flavors of macaroons at the Macaron Parlour Patisserie and bought a box to share while sitting in the sun at Tompkins Square Park!
