Our trip to the city was originally planned to see Jack Bruce at the BB King Theater. Unfortunately the show was cancelled due to illness. Since we were already in the city we ventured off to the village. It's been some time since just walked around the neighborhood and things had certainly changed. Luckily I had my camera and made the best of the trip.
As we travelled west to east, we came across some new and interesting sites. Like this restaurant that had quite a crowd inside and people waiting to get in.
Apparently there is HUGH market for gluten-free dining in NY. You can read more about this on the Risotteria webpage.
The brand new DIZTRICT store, "a one-stop shop for cool, cute and quirky accessories" according to Time Out New York.
This store is a Korean Hotdog place, the first in New York, but there are over 100 of them in Korea. I've never heard of, let alone tried a Korean Hotdog; not sure I handle this, but it sounds interesting.
Spring has certainly arrived, even on the sidewalks of New York, Daffodils are breaking through and making their appearance.
Even the neighborhood bodega has an assortment of fresh-cut flowers to choose from.
East of 6th Avenue, you can find an assortment of clubs and pubs, some old and some new. You can even sign up for a walking-tour "Pub Crawl" to all the joints that have been frequented by literary greats such as Dylan Thomas, Eugene O'Niel, Edgar Allen Poe, and more. Heck, even Bob Dylan was a Greenwich Village lover.
Pubs that we ran across in our jaunt included The Bitter End, Kenny's Castaway, The Back Fence, to name a few.
