We’re sharing our favorite #ThompsonUncovered moments of summer in #NYC, heading to one of our favorite neighborhoods: The West Village. NYC GO beautifully describes one of our favorite neighborhoods to get lost in.
“Much of the West Village’s charm rests in its 19th-century townhouses and cobblestone streets, which look much the same as they did when the neighborhood was at the center of some of history’s most influential social and countercultural movements. Just over the past half century or so, those have included the breakthrough of experimental theater and Beat literature in the 1950s; the fight for housing preservation in the ’60s; and, in 1969, the Stonewall Riots that spurred the national gay liberation movement. Those moments still characterize the West Village today, as the neighborhood proudly displays its diversity and dedication to tolerance and inclusion.”
