      I have been to a lot of nice places in Manhattan and there was this particular tour which I did with my group of friends and something that I find truly memorable and enjoyable. In Manhattan, I went to a nice place called East Village and we did lots of walking and cabbing around, which I find it to be a very interesting activity to do. Here is a review of East Village, Manhattan in New York and I would really recommend anyone for the walk and cab ride tour.

      I was with a couple of friends back in year 2001 and we decided to walk through East Village. My friends actually wanted to rent a car or something and went exploring but we ended up walking and all of us promised one another that should we become tired we


      would take a cab.

      First place that we ventured was the Stuyvesant Street. There were lots of mansions that I noticed in this area and I checked with one local person and she told us that Stuyvesant lived in an old mansion in that area. Everything there was sort of a 19th century influence and I did not like it so much since it felt kind of eerie. That was a weird feeling, but it was what I felt exactly. We went and saw lots of posh environment and I couldn’t understand why someone would stay there. But on the contrary, it seemed like a pretty upscale and more safer place than some other parts of Manhattan.

      Next, we took a cab ride to Cooper Square. This place was founded in 1859 by Peter Cooper and ...


      • there were lots of public speakers that I saw. There was even a nice statue of the late Peter Cooper and my group of friends and yours truly took some nice photos with the statue. My friends loved the place since it reminded them so much of the Parliament House in Singanpore. But I don’t think that the image is quite the same though. After that, we walked through Lafayette Street and I asked a local guide for a nice theory tour. He was kind enough to tell us that the place was actually one of the earliest venues for Off-Broadway productions. This place is actually my most favorite and we went to this particular earliest venue theater called Joseph Papp Public Theater. There were around 5 playhouses and a cinema and I really love
        the “Broadway” feeling. We then went for a cup of coffee and walked through Bleecker Street. Now, there was nothing much to be found here; just that I saw an 1898 Bayard Building. We took more pictures of the famous New York structure, designed by one of the famous architect, which I had forgotten the name. We were kind of stupid to miss out a place that we had take note and we walked back to Lafayette Street and then went to walk further to reach Astor Place.

        There is a nice place here called Astor Place Hair Design. I got my hair cut there, and the cost was a bit expensive. All in all, it was a very interesting walk cum cab ride for us and I will not miss an opportunity to do it again; given the chance.
