The convergence of Lafayette and Mulberry Streets at Bleecker creates for a fascinating block which whittles itself down to nothing more than a sliver. The small, triangular building which sits on the plot could put the Flatiron Building to shame with it's absurd lack of space. Bite, a small eatery fills this unusual storefront as best it can. In a way, a kitschy eatery with a one-word name is one of the few things that could thrive here.
Bleecker is well-known in Greenwich Village for it's wide selection of bars, bars and more bars. However, this far east, and despite the subway stop, the street is still fairly calm. Bigger deal joints like The Bleecker Street Theater are practically hidden amongst the hardware stores. Walking down the block reveals a number of "practical" stores such as photo printing, shoe repair, and a locksmith.
There are some particularly beautiful examples of architecture, but many of them seem to have been neglected over the years. I would say it's a shame, but sometimes deterioration befits a block more than restoration.
