West Village

I think I successfully walked every street in the West Village today (about 14 miles).

West Village is very disorienting.  As you can kind of see from the map above, the streets of the are set a about a 45 degree angle to the rest of the Manhattan grid.  Additionally, most of the streets are named (not numbered), and the ones that are numbered don't necessarily make sense (like how W 4th St. intersects W. 13th St.). Thank God for Google Maps.

Instead of plagiarizing a bunch of stuff off of Wikipedia, I'll let this historical marker do my work for me.


Wasn't that easier?
