Description
According to Landeck, this is Minetta Lane in New York City's Greenwich Village. Minetta Lane is named for Minetta Brook, whose course it followed from Macdougal Street to the turn at Minetta Street. In 1896, Stephen Crane wrote that both Minetta Lane and Street had until recently been "two of the most enthusiastically murderous thoroughfares in the city."
