---------------------------------***SOME HISTORY***------------------------

**THIS NEIGHBORHOOD IS OLD AND FULL OF CHARM AND CHARACTER, BARS, RESTAURANTS, BATH HOUSE, CHARLIE PARKER HOUSE, THE LATE POET "ALLEN GINSBERG" (WHO LIVED AND DIED IN THE EV. In 1966 Andy Warhol promoted a series of multi-media shows, entitled "The Exploding Plastic Inevitable", and featuring the music of the Velvet Underground, in a Polish ballroom on St. Marks Place. On June 27, 1967,the Electric Circus opened in the same space with a benefit for the Children's Recreation Foundation whose chairman was Bobby Kennedy). The Grateful Dead, The Chambers Brothers, Sly & the Family Stone and the Allman Brothers were among the many rock bands that performed there before it closed in 1971.

On March 8, 1968 Bill Graham opened the Fillmore East in what had been a Yiddish Theatre on Second Avenue at East 6th Street. The venue quickly became known as "The Church of Rock and Roll", with two-show concerts several nights a week. While booking many of the same bands that had played the Electric Circus, Graham particularly used the venue – and its West Coast counterpart – to establish new British bands like The Who, Pink Floyd, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and Led Zeppelin. The Fillmore East also closed in 1971.

MUSIC
CBGB, the nightclub considered by some to be the birthplace of punk music, was located in the neighborhood, as was the early punk standby A7. No Wave and New York hardcore also emerged in the area's clubs. Among the many important bands and singers who got their start at these clubs and other venues in downtown Manhattan were Patti Smith, Arto Lindsay, the Ramones, Blondie, Madonna, Talking Heads, Television, the Plasmatics, Glenn Danzig, Sonic Youth, the Beastie Boys, Anthrax, and The Strokes.

ART
Over the last 100 years, the East Village – and the Lower East Side – have contributed significantly to American arts and culture in New York.[9] The neighborhood has been the birthplace of cultural icons and movements from the American gangster to the Warhol Superstars, folk music to punk rock, anti-folk to hip-hop, advanced education to organized activism, experimental theater to the Beat Generation and the community of experimental musicians, composers and improvisers now loosely known as the Downtown Scene.

Club 57, on St. Marks Place, was an important incubator for performance art and visual art in the late 1970s and early 1980s; followed by Now Gallery, 8BC and ABC No Rio.

During the 1980s the East Village art gallery scene helped to galvanize a new post-modern art in America; showing such artists as Kiki Smith, Peter Halley, Keith Haring, Stephen Lack, Greer Lankton, Joseph Nechvatal, Nan Goldin, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Wojnarowicz, Rick Prol, and Jeff Koons.

  • Nice apartment and very good location. We spend 5 lovely days in the Rod's apartment. en we enjoyed our stay. it's a quiet little studio with a pleasant courtyard.

    May 2012
  • Wireless worked fine. This was a small ground-floor apt with a view of the courtyard. Clean. Bathroom is tiny. Kitchen was adequately stocked. AMAZING location. Heart of East Village with everything you ever need within a 20 minute walk.

    April 2012
  • The apt was great and was booked late after I was canceled on. The location is perfect for all those looking for a real NYC experience.

    December 2011
  • Location was great. Walk half a block in either direction and you can easily get a cab. The only complaints we really had were that there were no paper towels and no hand soap in the bathroom, and there were only two towels for an entire week's stay.
    Roderick was very punctual and easy to get in touch with. We enjoyed our stay.

    October 2011
  • My daughter and I enjoyed our stay! Great neighborhood. Easy communications and quick responses from host. Thanks so much for an enjoyable stay!

    October 2011
  • bon logement, très bien placé, au calme (très appréciable dans une ville comme New York), petite cour très agréable lors des journées ensoleillées! simple mais confortable.

    October 2011
  • I got this apartment last minute, so I was very grateful to have Roderick offer a special rate to accommodate me. The apartment is cute, but it is located in the back house, as in you walk through a long corridor, to an outside area, and then to another building...so I felt a bit isolated, which may be great if you're a couple or if you prefer it very quiet.

    All an all a great, seamless stay.

    October 2011
  • Excellent quiet little studio, off the street on an excellent courtyard. The bed's comfy, the kitchen just right, and the courtyard's a nice place to have your tea in the morning. Roderick is local and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again.

    October 2011
  • Everything was just as described. Roderick was really helpful and replied very promptly. The location was perfect! It's a great neighborhood with tons or interesting cafes and felt really safe. Our only real complaint was that someone before us had smoked and the smell was lingering. The bathroom light was also a little janky, but was more annoying than a real problem with our stay. The room had just about everything we needed, except a microwave. I would definitely recommend Roderick's place overall. He was great to work with and it was awesome to be in such a great location.

    September 2011
  • My overnight stay in NYC was a last minute plan. My plans earlier in the week were cancelled because of Hurricane Irene so I was in need of making last minute arrangements. AirBnB put me on the "stand-by" list and Roderick responded quickly with a great offer.

    His apartment is in a fantastic (email hidden) the middle of the East Village!

    The apartment was great! Clean, well equipped and safe!

    I would highly recommend the apartment as well as Roderick as a host!
