East Village: The View From 2000

A Curbed reader forwards an article from The Coooperator, dated September 2000, that discusses the coming colonization of the East Village by real estate developers. Welcome to the bizarro East Village: "Young mothers wave their husbands off to work in Wall Street and uptown each morning, and then take their children to the playground at Tompkins Square Park." (And, a price check: "$650,000 for a 1,150-square foot pre-war walk-up loft on Avenue B, and $325,000 for a small pre-war studio, with separate kitchen and sleeping loft, on Tompkins Square overlooking the park.")
