East Village, the birthplace of punk rock and New York counterculture. Relatively cheap rent in the Village has been drawing in artists, misfits, and “punks” for generations. East of the Bowery, and with the borders of 14th St. and Houston St. to the north and south, this town in Lower Manhattan is vibrant with the culture many think of when they think of New York City. The area was once a massive farm owned by one man: Peter Stuyvesant. Parcels of land were eventually sold to poor immigrant farmers, where it became the young nation’s first foreign language neighborhood. As the immigrant community continued to grow and take form in the area, residents began to protest the unfair and inhumane working conditions of the times. These were the seeds being sown for the future East Village to become a hub of brave, artistic souls. The continuing migration of Beatniks into the area spawned the interest of independent artists and hippies. This growing counterculture image is what has allowed the East Village to become the home of artists such as the Ramones, Andy Warhol, and musical genres such as punk-rock and hip-hop.
