Fodor's Expert Review Stuyvesant Street

East Village Neighborhood/Street

Slicing through the block bounded by 2nd and 3rd Avenues and East 9th and 10th Streets, this diagonal street is unique in Manhattan: it's the oldest street laid out precisely along an east–west axis. Among the handsome 19th-century redbrick row houses are the Federal-style Stuyvesant Fish House at No. 21, built as a wedding gift for a great-great-granddaughter of the Dutch governor Peter Stuyvesant, and Renwick Triangle, an attractive group of Anglo-Italianate brick and brownstone residences that face Stuyvesant and East 10th Streets.
