Hipster, avant-garde, cutting edge, wild, bohemian, iconoclastic, punkish, & beyond unconventional. Gothic, bizarre, eclectic, extremely antiestablishmentarian, young to a "T", new college town, black leather & chains & diametric opposite to the Upper East Side!
Great unusual finds, especially clothes, shoes, & boots. Excellent Japanese restaurants. Little Ukraine-or what is left of little Ukraine. Strand bookstore. Used to have bookstore row on 4th Avenue, now only Strand & another bookstore are remnants of bookstore row. Great place to have a real blast!
