Wooster Street is a street in SoHo, Manhattan and Greenwich Village that runs south to north from Canal Street to Washington Square.[1] It is a prime location for on-location filming and photo shoots due to its relatively low traffic, and the flagstone sidewalks and cobblestone street give it an old gritty feel.


The street is named after an American Revolutionary War General, David Wooster. [2]

The street is home to many boutiques, restaurants (including a branch of the Momofuku Milk Bar) and cultural institutions such as The Wooster Group, an experimental theater company based at the Performing Garage at 33 Wooster Street.
