These days, its one of the hippest neighborhoods in downtown Manhattan. The building’s located close to the F/D/B/Q/6/N/R trains, so leaving your neighborhood (should you ever feel the need to) is simple. The building is also close to the East Village, NoHo, SoHo, NoLita, the Lower East Side…basically, the options for shopping, dining and bar hopping are positively endless.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

The Avalon Bowery Place is expensive, and understandably. Mere mortals can hardly afford to live on the Bowery these days, and the last of the tenement  houses have long been torn down. You’ll also be shacking up with movie star Anne Hathaway, who rents in the building. The floor to ceiling windows mean tons of natural light, and the finishes are top of the line. The neighborhood can’t be beat – it’s the place to live in downtown Manhattan right now, and offers access to tons of public transportation.
