My First “Bleg”
I’ve booked a trip to NYC, specifically Greenwich Village, for the weekend of the 27th. Staying in the Chelsea district at the Chelsea Hotel, home to a number of painters, writers, and other boho types throughout the last century. Sid Vicious killed Nancy Spungeon there; Bob Dylan wrote “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” there; Edie Sedgwick and a number of Warhol girls stayed there in the ’60s. Again, I’ve been to the Village, but never spent a considerable amount of time there. If anyone knows of any good restaurants, used bookstores (besides Strand Books), galleries, interesting sites, walking tours — anything in general that I simply must see in the Village, feel free to e-mail me. I welcome your recommendations/advice. Thanks.
