• Home prices decreased by more than 30 percent year-over-year in March and April; the median price in April was $767,000
• The median rent in March and April reached $3,450, slightly more than on the Upper East Side
• 82 percent of all housing units built in the East Village are rentals, a higher percentage than the one for all of Manhattan (67 percent)
• The smallest home in the neighborhood spans only 250 square feet, yet sold for $500,000 back in 2006
• 34 is the median age of an East Village resident.
