Avenue D is the easternmost named avenue in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, east of Avenue C and west of the FDR Drive. It runs between E. 12th and Houston Streets, and continues south of E. 2nd Street as Columbia Street. Avenues A, B, C and D are the genesis of the name for Alphabet City section of the East Village neighborhood, which they run through. It continues as Columbia Street below Houston Street, and ends at Grand Street.

Avenue D is served by the M14D bus from E. 10th Street to Houston Street (southbound) and Delancey Street (northbound) via Columbia Street.
