With a prime location on 2nd Avenue between 1st and 2nd streets, The East Luxe is the perfect touch of modernity in the richly eclectic, forward-moving East Village neighborhood.
The building is made up of two to four bedroom apartments, each equipped with one to two full bathrooms with marble-top sinks and glass enclosed showers. Every unit is adorned with brand new kitchen installations, an in-house washer/dryer, central air, and ample closet space in each bedroom. The high ceilings and over-sized windows in each room give unobstructed views of the vibrant East Village and allow natural light to fill the space and reflect off the finely-finished white oak floors. Fourth floor units also have private, spacious terraces. The quality of construction, smart use of space, and careful attention to a contemporary aesthetic classify each apartment as a tranquil oasis from the bustling lower Manhattan lifestyle.
Residents of the building have access to the freshly-constructed landscape roof deck, perfect for hosting barbeques and outdoor dinner parties. Wow your guests with breathtaking views of the entire East Village and beyond, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, The Standard Hotel, and the Manhattan Bridge.
33 2nd Avenue is just steps away from the F line at the 2nd Avenue station and only four blocks from the 6 line at Bleecker Street and the Broadway-Lafayette station, which has the B,D,F, and M lines. Downtown landmarks like Veselka restaurant and the Bowery Mural are in close proximity, and the neighborhood is bordered by the shopping district of SoHo to the west and the hip, young nightlife of the Lower East Side to the east. Exile Professional Gym is located next door and the largest Whole Foods Market in the city is just one block away for your convenience.
The East Village can best be described as a New York within New York. The neighborhood came to be as a settling ground for immigrants, some staying for a brief period to become accustomed to the city before moving to different neighborhoods or the outer boroughs and some still happily situated in the same building after generations. A mix of their different cultures created a colorful, lively, and historic city within a city.
The East Village is still, and will always be, colorful, lively, and historic, but the past few decades have seen it transforming. University students and young professionals, creative types and fresh faces from small towns, are moving in because of the affordable housing and making a splash. Foodie restaurants and boutique shops are popping up next to corner bodegas and community barber shops. Street art colors the sides of buildings on every block, signed with big names like Banksy and unknown rising artists. The East Village is now the token hip neighborhood of Manhattan, where New Yorkers spend their weekends bar hopping and wandering through innovative art galleries. The growing popularity of the area has identified it as prime ground for development: five-star hotels and luxury apartment buildings are nestled between pre-war walk-ups with mom-and-pop shops on the first floor. Despite all the new, the old—the friendly grocer, the rich sounds of many languages on the street, the dumpling place around the corner—still survives. The East Village is still a city within the city, where the past and the present come together to create an eclectic and unique lifestyle you can only find in New York.
