ah, right down the street from my office! i love the west village simply for the history of the apartment buildings. have you ever read Republic of Dreams? It has a wonderful history of artists/writers and where they lived in the Village over time...


Republic of Dreams is on my list but I haven't gotten to it yet. I'm always struck by the density of history in lower Manhattan. One of my favorite things to do with an out of town guest is to stand in Washington Square Park and start pointing at houses "Mark Twain lived there, Henry James lived there, Willa Cather lived there, Edgar Allen Poe lived..."


I came for the bikes and stayed for the house, it
saves on carpet cost at that width. On the bikes if that are all the bikes the population of the naked city has fallen quite a number. I live in the dried up crotch of Lake Erie, but I am still just a lad from Jamaica,Q. I'll be back for more looks in the future.
