The East Village is home to many thoughtful and caring community members. If you’re lucky to shop in the right place, you might know this inspiring person, Carmen. Carmen expresses her love for the safe and friendly community that she now calls home, the East Village. Carmen makes everybody feel special by remembering their names as they shop in our “hood”.
When you walk along the west corridor of the East Village, few businesses have been standing longer than Lee’s Transmissions. Opened in 1967 by Lee Cartwright, the humble shop at 1350 East Hastings Street has become a fixture in the area, servicing happy customers for nearly five decades. Walt started working in 1980 as a junior employee at Lee’s, and has now owned the place for over twenty years. Like so many businesses in the East Village his is and always has been a family business where Walt likes to keep it local, supporting his community.
