MrJumbos New York: West Village
Chelsea is just north of the West Village, the western reach of Greenwich Village, filled with cobblestone side streets that collide at crazy angles and one-of-a-kind architecture.
This little watchtower (really a chimney, I think) sits on a high corner of Westbeth, the artists colony in a converted warehouse at the corner of the West Street and Bethune.
Two towers and a bridge at Westbeth.
This part of the West Village is crowded with meat warehouses and businesses that serve butchers.
It also has developed a thriving underground nightlife. Notice the posters reflected in the front door, advertising all kinds of clubs and shows.
Jimi Hendrix wrote a song called Bellybutton Window.
The West Village is a delightful neighborhood for a relaxed gambol on a lazy afternoon.
