I love downtown. It never ceases to amaze me that even though we now inhabit every inch of this rock, for the first few hundred years, almost the entire livelihood of the inhabitants took place behind a wall on the south end of the island. The birthplace of the Stock Exchange, although the financial business is now spread out all over the place, this neighborhood has taken on a whole new life as residential enclave sitting on every subway line that runs through the city. A friend of mine, Eddie Shapiro turned me on to this little jewel designed by the same architects as Rockefeller Center, and sitting right in the middle of this new renewed purlieu.
