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.

History[edit]

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.
