HoodWatch: Vestry Named 43rd Best Block in NYC!

[Corner of Vestry and Greenwich by HoodWatch photographic correspondent Will Femia]

The results of Time Out's nonscientific survey of the Best Blocks in NYC are in, and we have glad tidings to report. A block found within this week's HoodWatch microhood scored big, landing at a plum #43 on the charts. TONY's skinny on the sainted block, Vestry between Greenwich and Hudson: "The northwest portion of Tribeca has become one of the city’s most desirable enclaves, and this stretch of Vestry is hard to top. The Greenwich Street restaurant lineup is around the corner, and Hudson River Park beckons from across the West Side Highway." Amen.

Oh, and the blocks ranked higher than #43? All right. TONY's Top 10, after the jump. (Brace yourself. Goddamn Fort Greene scored first place.)

2) Gramercy Park South between Park Avenue South and Irving Place, Gramercy Park
3) West 20th Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, Chelsea
4) 45th Avenue between 21st and 23rd Streets, Long Island City, Queens
