Weehawken Street, located in the westernmost side of Greenwich Village, is one of the shortest and charming one-block streets in Manhattan, but with a long history because of its proximity to Hudson River and its maritime activity.
The street is an NYC landmark where one of the very few remaining wooden houses can be found. You’ll need a map to find it, as the West Village does not conform to the grid pattern and makes it into a labyrinth. Hint: go west on Christopher and West Streets. A walk through the West Village is one of the most enjoyable experiences in Manhattan, whether you find the street or not.
The wooden house is supposed to be a remnant of a market house, when there was a street market there between 1824 and 1834.
