New York City is where I grew up and have lived the longest. But I still have a lot to learn about, well, Greenwich Village for example. Here is some of what I found this weekend while walking the length of Charles Street from the Hudson River to Greenwich Avenue.
Onetime Charles Streeters also include Sinclair Lewis and Fiorello LaGuardia.

I used to go with FB Modell to a restaurant there – Armenian? – I remember delicious cold yogurt soup.
Don’t forget 5 Patchen Place, home of Djuna Barnes!
