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!

Here’s a list of all the places we visited:

Washington Square Park

Washington Square Park is true gem of Greenwich Village, best known for its towering arch. Admission is free, open daily from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Washington Square Park; 212.639.9675

Not much better than a stroll through Washington Square Park on a nice Spring day!
