Our second New York outpost is a special one, tucked into the heart of Greenwich Village, so close to the Christopher Street subway stop you could toss your hat to it. We still get chills walking the same blocks as a young Dylan, or ducking past Matt Umanov’s old storefront where Steve Earle salvaged more than a few of his over one hundred Martins. But the West Village is more than music history, it’s our favorite place to stroll, café Americano in hand, on the kind of breezy autumn day that Joan Didion pined over, that every human who has ever been lucky enough to pass through the Big Apple has shaken their heads at collectively and sighed. This is city living: the benches in tiny parks, lights strung from pear and locust trees, late night slices at Joe’s, and now, a couple of Californians trying their hand on the most iconic shopping stretch in downtown Manhattan. Bleecker; it’s the soul of New York, and we couldn’t be happier to be here.
