Some of the East Village's interesting bits have been documented over at Bluejake, in an effort to cover most of Manhattan below 14th Street. Gothamist was amused by the comments about an above 14th Street endeavor, including this one from Mike:

The East Village series at Bluejake: Day 1, 1st to 4th Streets, Day 2, 1st to 4th Streets, Day 3, 5th to 8th Streets, Day 4, 9th to 11th Streets, and FINALLY Day 5, 12th to 14th Streets. And the whole gallery.
