2. MacDougal Alley
MacDougal Street is one of the more storied streets in the village, specifically as the center of the art, literary, and music scene of the mid-20th century. A small gated alley sits near the northernmost portion of the street. The alley was originally built in 1883 as house stables for the wealthy landowners in the area. Today, the houses along the street are used by NYU.
