The East Village is not to be overlooked when looking for a loft and a place to live in this city. The area is culturally and historically diverse and offers both newer loft buildings and heritage conversions. Living in the Hastings area does not mean in the epicenter of debauchery and shady characters. Imagine a centrally located loft with ocean and mountain views, a rooftop bbq with a glass of chardonnay while the sunset casts golden rays of angelic beauty across the landscape and all the amenities you could ask for. Groceries, coffee, restaurants, community gardens, bus routes and easy access to the horse races!
