I’m from out of town. How do I get an idea of what Greenwich Village is like?

Village Townhouse from Wired New York by ablarc Well, you could rent a Woody Allen movie. Or you see some fabulous still photos: Go to Wired New York (www.wirednewyork.com) and hit the “community” tab. You’ll get a bunch of different forums. Near the top, under the “City Guide” heading, will be an underlined “New York City Guide for Visitors” : Sub forum: “Photos of New York.”

So go ahead, click “Photos of New York.” The gorgeous townhouse shot above was taken by member “ablarc” on the Greenwich Village thread.

If you like short films, you can go to www.turnhere.com (a site founded by real estate guru Brad Inman himself) and watch four-minute local movies. Many of them are a little too deliberately “indie,” but check out:

for a broker showing a $3.2 million apartment (sorry, kids, it’s sold). A typical luxury apartment would look like this, with smaller bedrooms and no wine room; An image from the Turn Here W. 13th apartment

the kitchen, bath, and finishes are all typical for a new high-end downtown project. Check out the exposed brick and keyed elevator entrance straight into the apartment, both Tribeca features brought to the Village. (And ignore the lousy view you get for $3.2 million!)

For a little West Village character,
