10 Downing Beautification Project AKA West Village, I Envy You

There are a lot of ugly things in the world. The boy I brought home from the bar last weekend, me after one too many shots of tequila, and sometimes, I would even dare to say that New York is ugly. In a city where there are more rats than people and homeless men can just pull down their pants and show you their penis on a whim, it’s always nice when you stumble upon something pretty in this city. That’s exactly how I felt when I stumbled (ok, not stumble, I was gently guided) to the 10 Downing Beautification Project yesterday in the West Village.

Stonehenge Partners and the SoHo Partnership took out some space and spruced it up quite a bit! Aside from the established 10 Downing Restaurant and trendy Scuderia, which is exactly where the Soprano family would dine if they wanted a mod, Italian meal in the West Village (perhaps after dropping some friends off in the Hudson) so you know it’s that good- Stonehenge and the SoHo Partnership installed 15 new tree beds and a smorgasbord of impatiens. Yes, trees people! In the city of sky scrapers. I was loving it. And it could not have been a more beautiful day to show off the latest beautification project.

As if I wasn’t jealous enough of people who dwelled in the West Village. Sigh… One day.
