New York City is full of places to go and things to see. In NYC, it’s rare to find places that people haven’t seen. Whether it’s an old building with historical importance or a new piece of art in Brooklyn Bridge Park, there is no shortage of sights to see.
Word on the street is that there are some blocks in the city that have yet to be traveled. They are hidden gems in places that folks normally wouldn’t think to look. These streets are great if you’re scouting locations or just looking for some new NYC scenery. Some of these places are perfect for summertime strolls and of course, photos for the Gram. Check out the list below and be sure to put these on your list of things to see this summer.
Greenwich Village is home to plenty of vintage streets and passageways. One of them is Washington Mews, located near Washington Square Park. The block is lined with 19th Century homes and buildings and a cobblestone street that used to carry horse drawn carriages.
Gay Street between Waverly and Christopher is home to Federal Style houses on one end and Greek revival homes on the other. This block is notorious for photo shoots and movie sets so there’s always something going on. Stop by and take a look at it for yourself.
Sixth 1/2 Avenue is a strange place that you’ve probably walked past many times. This hidden pedestrian walkway is between sixth and seventh hidden in the cut. This area is perfect for lunchtime office detox and just straight chillin’.
Get a little taste of European flavor on Pomander Walk on New York City’s Upper West Side.
Brooklyn has some too…Cobble Hill is home to Verandah Place, a hidden gem across the street from Cobble Hill Park.
