After walking around the East Village and Lower East Side on some recent prospecting jaunts, I was blown away by the ridiculous rents. However I was equally impressed by the plethora of stuff to do. I used to live on Ludlow Street and Rivington back in the early 80’s and I paid 300/mo. It was the wild west but so much fun. Now it’s still as funky, but the panhandlers have to go back to their flats in Brooklyn and there’s a 7/11 opening up which is the source of some debate.

Nevertheless it’s still about as cool as Manhattan is going to get and and I follow one of EVR’s DJs David Koral. Other notables include Andy Rourke of The Smiths. For those of you who don’t know, there is an actual radio station that streams from a store front on 1st Avenue down by Houston.

They have a nice site and spin some eclectic stuff. Here is a link – poke around for a few moments.
