An old formerly private NYC row home converted into a private artists' club and performance space and sort of art school. The building inside is old and a bit dark and morose. Interesting to see the 3 or 4 galleries which had members' works on...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
