The blog Scouting NY is authored by a film location scout whose job it is to explore the forgotten details of the city for hidden gems. He calls himself Scout and posts amazing digital photographs and explanations of his various finds.
The blog sort of serves as a tour for the city’s visually interesting locales and tidbits, exploring their history along the way.
One of his most interesting posts was about his discovery of Grove Court, behind a portion of Grove Street in the West Village, seen below.
Readers can browse tags to look at posts about different neighborhoods. This is definitely a great blog to check from time to time and impress others with the random things you learn from Scout.
