Author Kevin D. Murphy and photographer Paul Rocheleau have put together an outstanding book entitled, The Houses of Greenwich Village that delves into the history and architecture of one of the most renowned Manhattan neighborhoods. This book takes you on a journey through eighteen houses and two gardens-both quite remarkable. Not only do you get the opportunity to view some spectacular homes, but you also get to learn some history about the families currently living there. The photographer is also prominent in the architecture industry for his photographs, therefore you miss out on nothing.
This book costs about $23 and is worth every penny.
