Fun and fascinating post, Tom. NY husband and I visit NYC every year, staying in Jersey with relatives, traveling to the city each morning. Sometimes we spend a night or two in the city, usually Westside but once we stayed in the East Village. Completely different experience than any other in Manhattan. Gritty, sometimes rambunctious, always eclectic.
