For those travelers who like to slow down and smell the flowers! This is the spoor of what once was the Manhattan Women's House of Detention in Manhattan. Mae West, Angela Davis, Grace Paley and hundreds of other "criminal" women were booked in the court...More

Right in the middle of one of the busiest neighborhoods is this wonderful, beautifully landscaped garden. It isn't very large, but has been designed to delight all four senses. There are benches, perhaps not enough. Hours of operation are a bit odd. When I've passed...More

BEWARE erratic closing times. I'm a photographer, and on two successive Sundays I wanted to capture the 'magic hour' light in the garden, typically 6-7 pm. Tho the posted sign states that the garden is open until dusk, on both occasions the staff left at...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
