What crawled up r3's ass and died? This is a totally inoffensive question.
Not '50s'-60s, but just across from the Stonewall, be sure to see and photograph yourself at the Segal statue, "Gay Liberation," in Christopher Park, 7th Ave. & Christopher.

He asked for landmarks older than that. Manatus is only from the early 90s. [Wasn't it something like Sebastian's until some time in the 80s?]
Fedora's finally closed about a year or so ago. Remember that yesteryear's Greenwich Village has largely disappeared and been transformed into stroller and nanny civilization, much to oldtimers' complaints. Some of the "feel" of the village has morphed into Chelsea, and some of the landmarks noted are still there, but the atmosphere of the "Village" has largely vanished.

Pre 50's at Grove and Bedford is the six-story apartment house used as the exterior on "Friends."
A block south of "Friends" is 75 1/2 Bedford, the narrowest house in the Village. Many famous people have lived there.
