Thread: Scenes of Greenwich Village

    Default Scenes of Greenwich Village

    I was in the Village on Monday and took some photos. In my opinion the most desireable place to live in the US, if not the world. Click the link to enlarge.

    I overheard the tour guide state that the narrow home just to the left of the fire box was once owned by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Interesting. I wasn't on the tour, just waiting for them to get out of the way so I could snap the picture. Now I'm going to have to go on one.

    No, the guy in the blue shirt is not a ghost.

    I'll post some others when I get home to high speed. I had to do this on dial-up:<

    These are great. I enjoyed scrolling the large versions where you can pick out a lot of detail.
    Look forward to the others.

    I too, look forward to more of your work! I was expecting to scroll down and see Jefferson Market....

    I'm currently holed up in a JC loft with no high speed access. Once I get home in a few days I'll post a few more. I can't deal with dial-up anymore....it's not good for my mental health/stress level.

    BTW, I don't think I have any of the Jefferson Market, though I'll have to check my hard drive.

    The most desireable place to live in the US and probably the most expensive...!

    The first, arguably true; the second, certainly not. But in any event, new photos of the neighborhood are always welcome, and I think that this is a good opportunity to bring new members' attention to a pair of masterful photo essays composed and posted here by Ablarc a few years ago:

    Beautiful, desirable, neighborhood.
    My favourite area of your wonderful city.
    Thank you for posting these - I too, look forward to seeing more.

    It's a generic police station house design that's seen elsewhere in the City and, in this instance, probably wasn't subject to landmark review. The 1969 Greenwich Village Historic District Designation Report by the newly-created LPC, which preceded designation of the Historic District, says of the site of this thing:
    "On this large lot, foundations have been laid for a new building extending through the block to No. 104 Charles Street. The Village Garage, built in 1918, recently stood here, and in the mid-Nineteenth Century, a screwbolt manufactory was located on this site."

    On my first visit to NYC in 1971 I paid a visit to that Station House after being robbed

    The old West Village police station house is still there. Located on the north side of Charles St. between Greenwich and Washington Sts., it was converted to apartments in the late 1970s and cloyingly named "Le Gendarme."
