As stylish as it is, the East Village preserves a laid-back attitude so even outsiders feel welcome when in this classic New York City neighbourhood. From early morning to late-late night, the East Village brims with activity for socialites and scaliwags alike.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood

Airbnb works with local photographers to capture the spirit of neighbourhoods all around the world. The photography on this page includes work by:
Youngna Park is a photographer and multimedia producer based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In 2011, she co-produced the feature-length dance music video, "Girl Walk // All Day", with her husband (and fellow Airbnb photographer), Jacob Krupnick. Her photography is intertwined with the narratives of daily life, and highly influenced by the relationship between nature and urban spaces. Shooting for Airbnb was a great reminder of how wonderful and serendipitous meandering walks around NYC can be.
Kenn Tam is a Canadian photographer living and working in New York City's Manhattan, that specialises in portraits and street photography. And yes, he was that high school year book guy with a 50mm lens for a face.
