    Favorite thing: I put them together on the title, but they'll be the first to tell you the two are seperate.
    Little japan occupies a small section of the east village, mainly around E 9th and E 8th st.

    ....more to come

    East Village Exploration

    Favorite thing: Explore the East Village 'Alphabet City' after 12:00 noon on a Saturday. Small clothing and art stores abound and less known avant-garde galleries are easy to discover. Focus on the section south of 10th street and east of Avenue A. Drop into the Life Cafe at the corner of '10th and B' for a bowl of chile or a drink.

    Visit Thompkins Square Park....

    Favorite thing: Visit Thompkins Square Park. It's not what it used to be (and even then, it was pretty damn interesting). THIS is the place to spend an afternoon in good weather and people-watch, especially in the summer. There is always something going on, or so it seems. On weekends there is a small farmer's market on the Avenue A side. There are a few art shows during the summer, as well as a number of rally's, benefits, concerts...you get the picture.

    Fondest memory: I've spent many afternoons here with friends, or reading/writing. It's actually quite peaceful depending on where you're sitting.
