The West Village is a weird neighborhood. The streets run on strange diagonals, there aren’t any super-tall buildings, and you’ll find lots of little random places like Grounded. It’s a coffee shop on a quiet block where you can get a sandwich or a smoothie and sit at a table while you try to get some work done. It’s a good spot to know about, and you’ve probably walked by it many times without ever realizing.
