Photo by myself somewhere around West 4th Street, in the Village.
Many of the townhouses around West 4th Street are well kept, with ornamental metal work and pretty stoops. The townhouse above had a pretty, wreath on its door, suited for the season.
As for the city, it's been flooded with tourists. Any drive down Fifth Avenue is lined with sidewalks filled with people looking up and about.
