My Village

I live in the beautiful part of Manhattan called the West Village. I chose it because it reminded me of Potts Point in Sydney and because there are no high rises. It is full of cobblestone streets, brownstones with their famous "stoops" and trees overhanging the road. It has a wonderful history of writers, artists and musicians. It is also full of tucked away restaurants and bars, funny little independent shops and heaps of bookshops. Here are some shots of what I see every day

This is my street

This is what I pass on the way to the subway

This is the famous Waverly Inn

And this is my favorite fragrance store "Aedes de Venustus"

More on the Village to come!
