Architectural, Cultural sights in New York City
- Sort by:
Private stables converted into homes line one side of the picturesque Washington Mews. Gaslights and horses have disappeared, but the tiny alley still embodies the essence of old New York. Famous residents have included writers Sherwood Anderson and Walter Lippman, and artist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, founder of the Whitney Museum. It's surrounded now by New York University, which owns some of the properties.
