Manhattan – West Village
254 Bleecker St between Sixth and Seventh Aves
Manhattan, NY 10014
Gourmands love this Bleecker Street cheese heaven, one of the City’s oldest and best. Walk in and you’re bowled over—and we mean that as a compliment—by the scent of hundreds of cheeses broken down into seven different types: bloomy, blue, firm and robust, fresh, hard, semi-soft and washed-rind. There are even classes for those wanting to learn more. Somewhere, the late Murray Greenberg, who started Murray’s as a butter and egg shop in 1940, is smiling—and munching on a piece of stinky gorgonzola.
