"Well, it used to be an alley anyway . . ."

Stuyvesant Alley was an "s" shaped street that straddled 11th and 12th streets. Almost the entirety of the East Village and the Bowery was the Stuyvesant Farm back when New York was becoming New York. Peter Stuyvesant was the first governor of New York, and, clearly, had a lot of money and land. Sadly, what could have been another great alley to live on (like Patchen Place) has been taken over by the bully of Manhattan: NYU. The alley has been covered by their behemoth of a dorm. So, there's nothing to see here because the alley is gone and you can't live here unless you go to NYU. If you do happen to go to NYU then I'm sure it's a great dorm to live in due to its proximity to everything great.
