If you look at a map of Greenwich Village the streets have a very unusual quilt like pattern. It’s one of the oldest parts of Manhattan and the quaint streets reflect the early farm boundaries of 1822. These could not be conformed to the city’s grid plan so the Village has remained an unique, bohemian haven.
We spent the afternoon walking around the area, and taking photos at one of the most quintessentials spots, Rainbow Row. Home to Bob Dylan at one time, this vibrant neighbourhood still feels like old New York.
Bleecker Street is one of my favourite places to shop and the day we spent in the West Village happened to be Bleecker’s Night Out. This was a neighbourhood organized event, where the stores served champagne, treats, and many had a DJ too. This evening really reflected the whole energy of the the village. We had such fun chatting with the staff at the various stores including Anine Bing, Diptyque and a new local brand Neely & Chloe. Our visit to the Paul Smith store was particularly memorable. Jonathon and I found a Jeff Koon’s Gold Bunny Sculpture that had to come home with us!
The air was just getting crisp on our West Village day. Cee and I both wore outfits from Le Chateau, and wanted to put together looks we would wear through the Fall. I love a sleeveless coat this time of year, and this black pencil skirt and sleeveless top have proven to be ideal basics. If you look through my New York photos you’ll notice I wore these stacked heels a lot. Le Chateau makes such comfy shoes and these have been my go to ever since we got home.
There is something wonderful about switching up your wardrobe for the season, especially for Fall. Even more so when you get to shoot those Fall looks in a place as magical as Greenwich village.
