Top 20 Alphabet City, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Alphabet City is located in the eastern part of the uber-cool East Village. It may once have been considered dangerous - and it definitely still retains a slightly gritty feel in parts - but today it is mainly filled with a mix of affluent New Yorkers, NYU students and longtime arty residents. This mix gives Alphabet City a personality that runs deep no matter how many new buildings spring up. With graffiti art lining the walls, wonderful restaurants, and one of a kind vintage shops, this is a great neighbourhood for those who want to stay in an edgy and authentic part of New York. One thing to know – New York is a very busy city with lots going on (it’s not called “the city that never sleeps” for nothing). As part of a truly authentic New York experience, you can expect a fair amount of noise and construction coming from the streets, whether it be a passing delivery truck, honking yellow taxis, or roadwork. Remember that those impressive skyscrapers do come at a cost – scaffolding can be part of the architectural landscape.
