Spring Forward

Abingdon Square Park in New York's West Village in the Spring

Now that the temperature has finally risen in the city and the sun has come back out, our neighborhood is virtually bursting with people out and about.

From tourists exploring the food shops, locals browsing the outdoor markets and older folks chatting on benches in the park as the floral beauty begins to bloom around them, the West Village seems to finally be alive again after the winter. We enjoyed the afternoon ourselves and took a stroll around to see what everyone was up to in the gorgeous weather.

Here’s to bike lanes and outdoor cafés!

    I just moved from Oregon to New Haven and I NEED to explore the city more often!!!! I would LOVE to live there someday but my path is taking me elsewhere for now. Any suggestions for a day trip to the city??

      Freya, we love to explore just by picking a neighborhood and wandering around. Of course, we’re partial to the West Village, so here’s a link to all of our Village posts in one spot. We’re hoping to make a trip up to New Haven soon so I’ll have to find out some of your favorites as well! -LR
