The East Village is packed with the eclectic and the edgy. Gorgeous women are as plentiful as the dive bars and sidewalk cafes. But so are the foul-smelling junkies, and piss-drunk, noctivagant hipsters.
- Going about in the night; night-wandering.
From Late Latin noctivagans, from noctivagare, from Latin nocti- (“night”) + participle form of vagari (“to wander”).
