Photo of the day: The Village, New York City

We exit the subay station at Bleecker Street and make our way North into “the Village”. The skyscrapers are now replaced by lower brick buildings with their characteristic fire escape staircases tightly mounted on the static facades. Trees taint the streets green and imprints buildings with their shadows in this quiet neighborhood.

Greenwich Village, initially called “Groenwijck” (Dutch for “Green District”), is an important landmark in the U.S.A. Situated in the Lower West Side of Manhattan, the “village” is famous for the forward-thinking attitudes of its people. New movements are born here in this artistic part of town which is also the gay area of New York City.
