More of the Walking Tour with Bob Sarlin

As I looked through my photos of our walking tour, I thought...this needs a second post..we did see a heck of a lot in 2 hours..put on your shoes as here we go.....

Judson Memorial Church 

the church from across the street heading to Washington Square Park

the carvings of Washington on the famous Arch and the work of Stanford White 

originally constructed in 1889 to celebrate George Washington's centennial, Mckim Mead & White's original design was rebuilt in marble in 1891 - 

a little private street a block up from Washington Square Park

one of the homes here sold for 5.5 million last year 

the names of some of these stores just keep amazing me

The Pink Pussy Cat was closed for the morning

this was an apartment building near Washington Square Park

the detail is amazing...even if no central air conditioning!!

we have not seen desserts in some time so this was in Corrado, the original bakery in the village where a branch is also at Grand Central Terminal 

are you in love with the village yet?

are you going to be sure to stop there when visiting NYC?

because you would miss all this........

I hope Bob and I have made you excited about the village. It is a great place to spend the day and just walk and explore. You never know what you may find.

I love all your posts, Rosemary. Seeing NYC with you is definitely being with an insider. The Macy's Flower Shop was just the most beautiful post. Thank you for doing all this for us. xx's
