Check out these great doors. I especially love the one that's crooked. That's not all camera angle; it was built that way. Click to enlarge them and get a closer look.
The buildings there have so much character. Many of them were built in the 1800's.
I love how the streets in the West Village don't follow the grid pattern of most of the rest of the city. Nothing makes sense; it's a fun place to get a little lost.
Of course a stop at Yogurtland is a must. I mean, if you're in the area... you basically have to, right?
The Hudson River Park is another favorite feature of the area. It's really beautiful and very well maintained. It's lovely to walk along the river there in the evening, since it's on the west side of the island you get a great view of the sunset over NJ.
I love these guys' hats.
