Patchin Place is home to the last 19th century gaslamp in New York City (though it’s now powered by electricity). It is a gated community in historic Greenwich Village, and it was once home to E.E Cummings. This adorable alleyway reminds us of the story of the lamplighter from The Little Prince. Tucked away in a small corner of the village, Patchin Place is a perfect spot to enjoy some quiet in New York City.
