Photo by myself on West 4th Street in the West Village.
A quaint view outside Cafe Cluny, in the Village.
All you need are a couple of wooden benches, an old-fashioned bicycle, and a flowering tree and there you have it.
Usually I don't like to include parked cars in my photos...or the ghostly blur of someone walking by. But this image fits my concept of living in the Village. Little streets. Little cafes and restaurants with awnings.
I was walking around there the other day and I've finally mastered the art of 'not getting lost' in that neighborhood. After more than 10 years of living here. There are random diagonal streets and having been brainwashed by the grid, you wind up going in circles.
I've never dined at Cafe Cluny, though I've heard of it. It's gotten good reviews online.
