"Secluded, gated and expensive"

Grove Ct is a an actually gated court off of Grove Street. It's a private, gated court with six identical rowhouses that were built in 1854. Their construction is interesting because they were built by a grocery store owner with the intended use of providing back houses for tradesmen to increase his profits. During this time, alleys and courts were not ideal places to live. They were always for the lower class and the help. Now, living in an alley or court in the West Village is considered the optimal situation. Living in an actual house in a gated courtyard in Manhattan is pretty unheard of so these homes are wildly expensive. The last time a house in Grove Court was on the market, it fetched just under $5 million for just over 1,000 square feet. This is some prime real estate. But, it is gorgeous. And, it is secluded, safe and quiet which is like the trinity of things that are impossible to find in New York City. Obviously, most people can't afford to live on Grove Ct, but I would highly recommend walking by and taking a peek at the homes.

"Drink and be merry"

One of my favourite bars in Manhattan. It’s a reliable local that always has a decent crowd.. There’s plenty of activity on the weekends and a relaxed drinking culture during the week. Throw in barmaids who belt out a few musical numbers throughout the night and you’re onto a winner here.. The piano is also a major attraction and occasionally a local might just jump on the piano and surprise all the other patrons… It’s also a moderately priced and a decent area… Worst case you don’t like this bar, go find 50 others in the area and take your pick…
