Narrow, with an industrial feeling, this block is rather devoid of any interesting features or buildings. Eventually opening up to a large, pleasant square before morphing into 9th Avenue, this stretch of Greenwich is also a rare "north/south" street which actually runs north and south (compared to most Manhattan streets which run Northeast).
To be perfectly honest, I wasn't terribly familiar with this part of town before first visiting last year to check out the High Line. I remember thinking at the time: "Gansevoort...how the hell do you even pronounce that?" (I still have a tough time). Strewn with cobblestones and interesting features, the area is a patchwork of old buildings and new logos. The intersecting streets just about guarantee that, regardless of the direction you go, you're bound to find something interesting.
