This gorgeous theatre was founded in 1924 by Edna St. Vincent Millay and is the longest continuously running Off Broadway house in the world. In fact, Barbara Streisand made her start here as an usher.

5. Birdbath, Neighbordhood Green Bakery – 145 Seventh Ave. South at Charles Street

This "green" bakery features walls made of wheat, cups made of corn husks and shelves made of recycled paper - plus, it's powered by wind energy. The West Village is the perfect spot for this eco-friendly shop that reminds us to reduce our carbon footprint as often as possible.

6. Horse Stable – Cornelia Street between Bleecker Street and West 4th Street

This space served as a fully functioning horse stable until 1964. It was recently used by theFood Network for the “Next Food Network Star” program.

This row of original structures from the early 1800s still features their original copper ceilings. The English-inspired architecture reminds us that New York's history is rich and hidden treasures can be uncovered every day.
