Yep, Washington Mews - not a typo, not a cat sound - but a lovely street in the heart of NYC's 'The Village', located by NYU. Conveniently located between 'The East Village' and 'The West Village' it has one of the city's best preserved historical sites.
Walking down this street makes you wonder, "Am I in NYC?".
Washington Mews is an alley between 5th Ave & University Place with a cobblestone road, little houses all in a row, flower boxes and lots of vines that used to house two-story horse stables. It is now made up of private residences and NYU facilities.
Edward Hopper used to live here.
