So we walked around, and sure there were brownstones and cute alleys and what is up with all the private ways? How is that a thing that people can declare that you can't park on some streets and have private security forces and stuff?

Architecture is very British with the cobbled stones and buildings are similar to old England. Very clean and some parts had some nice coffee shops.

This is a lovely neighborhood to walk through and just take in the history area! People live here, so remember to be respectful of that, though!

I know I was walking down one of the more famous streets in the country and that there were bits of history everywhere I looked but it was just a nice street.

Lots to see and do here. Take a self guided tour and enjoy the sites. Lots of interesting stores and places to visit. Bathrooms are hard to find. So many yummy places to eat and drink. A must see.
