I lived on many streets in New York, but this was my favorite. At the end of a long day, a slice of Joe's or a wedge of fourme d'ambert from Murray's fixed my spirits. I lived over on Downing Street a few years prior, and got married in the little park where Downing meets Bleecker. Downing was my happy years before I was married. Bleecker was my happy years after I was divorced. Bleecker is where the girl became a woman, mother, and young girl all over again.
