Another hidden gem in New York is Grove Court. #NYC#winningmeover#hoggerinnyc .
“ An alley hidden between 10 and 12 Grove Street. Entitled Grove Court, it is an area behind the buildings lining Grove Street full of six townhouses. Built in 1853-1854, the townhouses were constructed as “backhouses,” according to Walking Gotham. The poor did indeed take residence in the area, leading to the nickname of “mixed Ale Alley,” after the cheap liquor the inhabitants drank. Today, these houses are some of the more idyllic housing in the city, allowing their residents to escape the bustle of the city, while living in the heart of the Village.”- @untappedcities .
Last night I stayed on IG far too long and far too late. As a consequence I tossed and turned all night and woke up feeling like I hadn’t slept. I only got out of bed becuase my phone battery had died!!! This is actually an embarrassing confession to make. But I’m wondering, does it sound familiar to you or is it just me who’s a sad old instagram addict???
