    Madewell's Denim Roadtrip will be at Astor Place on 4/12/12 on between 12-7pm. Stop by for some very special surprises, including a styling station, a hair-braiding bar and a secret deal.

    Good place to meet your tourist friends who are not map competent and don't get Manhattan is set up as a grid. Lol. Plus there's a giant Starbucks nearby bc you know you'll be late meeting them. Ha!

    So romantic! An amazing intersection for architecture & people-watching. Fantastic street food/coffee/desserts served out of trucks.

    Although it’s no park, Astor Place is famous for it’s giant cube, an iron rotating sculpture that sits on a traffic island.

    They're redesigning the plaza for a much smoother look! However, don't think the cube will be back which is devastating and a major fail, lol.
