---------------------------------***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.

  • The apartment was great. Exactly as expected. Fantastic location in East Village and so incredibly quiet as it is from street. Lots of groovy wine bars and places to eat in area. Recomend 'The dumpling Man' for a $5 meal! Cheap and tasty! If you want healthy go to Y Cafe - bYO too! We had a great time in NY! But my feet are still aching two days later!

  • I needed a place to stay for work and the hotels in the city were just too much. This space is perfect for the single traveller. Everything was clean and the location was great. I had a couple of my Manhattan based co-workers come look at it, and even they were impressed with the size and state of it. The shower is a bit tricky as it seems to have a random pattern to turn the handle to get the water hot. The room and building are relatively quiet since it is tucked away in the back, but do know you can easily hear people coming up the stairs and people walking from the apt above, but those are my only complaints! Getting the keys was a breeze as was check out.

  • Rod was easy to get in touch with, Location of the apartment was really good and the apartment was nice, clean and peaceful.

    April 2012
  • Rod was punctual and helpful and the place is clean and has basic essentials provided. It is convenient to the subway and in a young and lively neighborhood. But this is a small space with a hard bed. It is a 2-flight walk-up accessed by walking through a locked, but dark alleyway and across a courtyard to a rear building. This makes it quiet at night, but older guests, such as myself, may find this cramped, overpriced, and a little unsettling.

    April 2012
  • Great apartment in a fantastic location. Rod was very communicative and made the place easy to check in and out of.

    February 2012
  • We really enjoyed our trip in New York and the flat was clean, new, good bed, and very well located. I really recommend it.
    And a special thanks to Rod for his hospitality

    November 2011
  • My mom & I stayed here for a week while Dad underwent open-heart surgery at the nearby V.A. hospital. It was a cozy, nice respite after spending looong hours at the hospital. Any issues/concerns we had were quickly addressed/resolved by Roderick.
    *worth noting: this apartment does not have a microwave or coffee maker, which I think would be valuable additions. Also, there is no bathroom sink/one must use the kitchen sink for all purposes. that being said, it is an attractive little studio in a quiet & safe area.

  • Awesome place! exactly what was expected and a great location! Had a blast and would definitely do it again
