Exploring NYC's Greenwich Village With Jay Glazer
This past month I got to shoot a really fun video with Corcoran as part of their ‘Local Next Door’ series―a video series that highlights different neighborhoods and boroughs of New York through the lens of local brokers.
Born and bred here, I’ve spent the better part of 33 years in the vibrant neighborhood, and am very happy that I was able to showcase some of the things that I hold dear.
I hope you enjoy watching this episode as much as we enjoyed filming it!
