“Cute area with great architecture...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

We wandered through here the same day we visited SoHo, you can walk between the two and they both offer some great architecture and older buildings, some excellent little shops and cafes, and its not so touristy in some areas which is good. Still plenty of taxis roaming the streets to take you back to where you came from :)

“Halloween parade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

Great place to look around in the day, and lots of lovely cafes and restaurants. Halloween Parade is a fantastic spectacle! But the crowds are massive, so don't go if you don't like being in a scrum!

“The Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

For me, its a shadow of its former self, but each NYC generation gets to discover it for themselves. For out of towers its probably a good day trip.

Great eats, clubs, bars. The bizarre and quaint, side by side. Other than that just another NYC neighb.
