Last of the Bohemians


Some of the best balconies and fire escapes in the city are found in Greenwich Village.


The arch and its design details in Washington Square Park.




Yes, the cappucino is fabulous here.


I mean really. Just look at that.




The house used as Carrie Bradshaw's apartment building in Sex and the City.


Magnolia Bakery was featured in a Sex and the City episode. It's not hard to see why. Its retro interior is so very charming. And the cupcakes, with pastel-colored icing like mint and lilac, are yummy.




My favorite neighborhood to stroll through is Greenwich Village. It has a unique charm, with its more haphazard street layout revealing its origins as a rural hamlet. How I would have loved to have experienced it in the 1960s, at the height of its bohemian heyday.

I love the effect in the first photo and the Bleeker Street photo. Is that tilt-shift, special lens baby lens, none of the above? Just curious! ;)

I have never held any interest in visiting New York... until you started posting these photographs. They are so lovely, and they capture perfectly, I'm sure, the wonderfully romantic nostalgia of the place. Thanks for sharing. :)
