Sunday in the Village

Manhattan-Greenwich Village

When every moment seems scheduled and rushed it's nice to try to find some time to be unhurried. One of my favorite weekend outings is a stroll around the Village. From our Goods for the Study store on W 8th, to the dog run in Washington Square Park, to a relaxed dinner at Otto it's about finding time to unplug and unwind with freinds and family.

When she is not working her way through the thousands of books she reviews weekly, she's often at the park, walking the streets of the city and trying to find the off moment to let her mind wander.

There are two dog runs in Washington Square Park, one for small dogs (under 25 pounds) and one for large. They are the self described "cool place for dogs to socialize and chill in the heart of NYC's Greenwich Village". Like any dog run in Manhattan it's often chaotic and sometimes crowded but as long as your dog enjoys being around others they will likely enjoy themselves.
