I woke up Thursday morning with no idea what I was going to do for the day as I had nothing in the diary until early evening. I toyed with the idea of a museum, but it was such a lovely day that I decided to do a long walk. As I was staying not far from Greenwich Village and as I don't know that part of Manhattan very well, I did a search online and found this walking tour. I highly recommend it as I was able to find all kinds of hidden nooks and crannies within the Village.
I spent a lot of last week eating and drinking my way through lower Manhattan. Although I lived in and near The City for eleven years, I had never really spent much time in Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District when I left was just that, neither cool nor trendy. It was a wonderful experience to discover new parts of such a wonderful city.
