East Village Moving Experts

New York City’s East Village barely takes up a square kilometer in size. But despite its size and somewhat misleading name, this world-class Manhattan enclave is the definition of a world-class mini-metropolis. And if you’re looking for the right team to help make this corner of NYC your new home — look no further. Oz Moving & Storage is guaranteed to make your moving experience top-notch, stress-free, and as world-class as the East Village itself.

Three decades ago, we started as a small team of native NYC movers with a handful of trucks. Since then, however, we’ve grown from a humble local moving company to one that does over 15,000 moves annually — including locally, cross-country, and internationally. But NYC and places like the East Village will always be home.

So need to pick up some last-minute packing supplies on moving day, some expert packing and unpacking services, and/or an affordable storage facility? Want some native Manhattan movers to safely navigate the stairs of your new historical East Village walk-up? Have some NYC-level fine art that requires the most delicate of white glove packing and/or storage solutions? Or pressed for time and need some full-service long-distance moving services fast?


Get a free moving quote, reach out, and let OZ help you feel right at home in the East Village in no time. And in the meantime, here are a few tips about the East Village itself.

East Village Moving Tips

Originally home to the Lenape Native Americans, the East Village was occupied by the Dutch in the 1600s. Ever since, it has been considered one of the wealthiest parts of the city (and, therefore, the country). But it’s also considered — among many other things — to be the birthplace of American punk rock. In other words, its history is as rich and complex as NYC itself.

Who Lives in East Village

Immigrants, Beat poets, hippies, bohemians, and countless celebrities have all called the East Village home over the years. And — despite the high cost of living — it remains home to quintessential New Yorkers of every imaginable variety.

Cost of Living in East Village

The average is 9% higher than the New York average (which is roughly $4,500/month in 2024). A tiny but East Village studio will run you upwards of $2,500/month. And you’re looking at a million at least if you want to buy. Groceries and other expenses are similar to the rest of Manhattan — that is, not cheap. So you’ll need at least $5,000-6,000/month to make it here. And probably a roommate or two.


What is There to do in East Village

But once you’re here, you definitely won’t be bored. Often considered a subsection of the Lower East Side (LES), for example, the East Village is sometimes further divided into Little Ukraine, the Bowery, and Alphabet City. And between these three archetypal NYC microcosms, you’re sure to find every imaginable variety of food, drink, shopping, entertainment, recreation, and luxury on the planet.
