The Village

After the bile of the Meatpacking District, I need a reverie… The Village is the only magical place in the grid of the Inner Borough. Little West 12th Street is four blocks to the north of West 12th Street, which is three blocks north of West 11th St, which is three and a half (counting Charles Lane) blocks north of West 10th St, which, further to the east, inexplicably intersects with West 4th Street, which also cuts across West 11th and 12th Sts, as well as the streets in between, before expiring at 13th Street, exhausted from its peripatetic hithering. Meanwhile, Waverly Pl is split in half by the Northern Dispensary, at Grove & Christopher, before healing itself again on the other side.

And have you ever been to Weehawken St?
