Explore the quirky West Village on this SNY tour — we will see the narrowest residential building in the city; a dormant “volcano”; the building that faces the same two streets; a remnant of a long-lost cemetery; a street with two names — on different sides of the street; a hidden alley behind a bend in a road; the numbered street that defies physics; the jail that became a library; and more! Finish with lunch at the Waverly Diner.
