Food and Fun at St. Marks Place

Food and Fun at St. Marks Place

If you’re looking for a cool place to go on a weekday evening, head over to St. Marks in the East Village for a bite to eat at one of many interesting and affordable local joints, some fun shopping in the colorful specialty shops along the street, or even a tattoo or piercing if you’re feeling adventurous. The grungy-chic stretch of 8th street stretches from 3rd avenue to avenue A, and you’ll know it when you see the big, rotating cube sculpture right across the street at Astor Place. Hungry? There’s a great selection of cheap eats and authentic ethnic food. Head to Mamoun’s Falafel for the best falafel sandwich in the city, or grab some dumplings from Dumpling Man. For dessert get a crepe from Crooked Tree Creperie, or Pinkberry. As for shopping, St. Marks boasts ultra hip thrift stores with rows of T-shirts and vintage Dior in their windows. There are adorable Tibetan shops whose smells of burning incense spill out onto the street. Clothing shops like Trash and Vaudeville and Search & Destroy pay homage to the village’s gritty, punk roots. There are great specialty shops like St. Marks Comics and The Sock Man. Young people enjoy Karaoke and live music in bars along the street, as well as free yoga at Yoga to the People. You can get to St. Marks on the 4 or 6 trains, which go directly to Astor Place or take the train to 14th Street and walk over. The scene is laid-back and friendly, making St. Marks a great destination for a casual outing any day.
