Hi Guest Roomers! My name is Meghan Sara, and I blog over at Adventures in Mediocrity. A lot of my blog material comes from living in the greatest city in the world, New York City (totally impartial here). There are tons of awesome things to do in the city, but whenever I get the chance, I love to spend a day down in Greenwich Village.
The main hangout in the Village is Washington Square Park, my favourite park in all of Manhattan!
It's fun to get lost in the maze of streets. Unlike Midtown and Upper Manhattan, from the Village down the streets are no longer a neat grid, but a dizzying haphazard of streets and alleys leading from one adventure to the next. Beautiful brownstones, old churches, and interesting architectural details like this! (photo above)
Bleecker Street is one of the most famous streets in the Village, spanning almost the entire West Village area. There's high-end shopping, like Juicy Couture, Coach, and Burberry, loads of vintage records stores, not to mention the best pizza in all of New York, John's of Bleecker Street!
But if you're on Bleecker Street, you'd be remiss if you didn't stop in for one of Magnolia's famous cupcakes. This cute little bakery specializes in super sweet, adorably decorated pastel delights. Be sure to try the banana pudding!
I hope you enjoyed my special tour of Greenwich Village! Be sure to stop by if you're ever in the Big Apple! And for more New York stories, tips, and trips, check out my blog, Adventures in Mediocrity!
