The Point NYC [Back to Blog]

If you've read any of our travel blogs, you know there are three things we really love about travel -- chocolate, pastries and yarn.  The best of all possible worlds puts the three things in one place.  Ahhhhhh, we found nirvana at The Point!

The Point is located in Greenwich Village, north of Houston on Bedford Street, between 6th Avenue (Avenue of the Americas) and 7th Avenue.   You can take the A, B, C, D, E, F or V train to W. 4th Street or the 1 to Houston Street.

The shop itself is bright and very friendly.  The staff was extremely helpful - not at all the NYC stereotype!  The shop features lots of our favorite brands including Alpaca with a Twist, Misti Alpaca, Jo Sharp Jojoland, Mission Falls Classic Elite,  Regia, Araucania, Malabrigo, Debbie Bliss and Rowan.  There is also a great selection of gadgets and notions from Addi and Lantern Moon, and a large selection of pattern books.

Now to the important part...the cafe.  Coffee, cappuccino, and lots of homemade pastries.  Yummmm.  There are several tables where you can sit, knit & nosh the day away.  We were there just after noon on a rainy Sunday and the place was abuzz with knitting and noshing activity.  And this was the first store we've visited where there were 3, count'em THREE, men knitting and/or shopping for yarn.  And not with women.  So if you're looking for a single man who knits while you munch on fresh pastry and shop for yarn......
