The West Village is most certainly one of my favorite places in the city. It has that old time neighborhood feel with the low Brownstones but its still centrally located in the busiest city in the world. The West Village is like the complete opposite of the Upper East Side. There are no Skyscrapers, only small houses and it really makes you feel like you're in another city. I love the history that this part of the city has and I like the small side streets that are much quieter than the rest of the city. This location was something in the spur of the moment. I was looking for a place to play and decided to just walk with the piano to this corner on Hudson street. They were having some kind of Block sale on Jane Street, so I stopped at the corner and played for an hour. The crowd was very receptive and

I wasnt there for too long and I didnt stop to take many photos. I found one really nice photo that someone posted on Twitter...

I dont think I would ever play at this spot again simply because there is not enough pedestrian traffic. I need an audience. But I'm still in love with the charm of this family oriented neighborhood.

Oh yeah... There were plenty of dogs involved at this location.
