One street to left of Third Rail Coffee is Thompson Street. Walk downtown on Thompson and keep your eyes peeled for all the beautiful people. This 10-15 minute walk towards Soho will open your eyes to the culture of Greenwich Village and lower Manhattan. Artists, designers, photographers, skaters, students, professors, and beer drinkers swarm the streets with their creativity, innovation, and energy. Notice all of the pubs, high-end restaurants, and art galleries that appeal to the local crowds. If you have some time, stop in one of the pubs for a drink and also check out the local art galleries that feature incredible abstract art. This experience will humble and inspire you to take on some creative endeavors of your own.
