Stone Street: How one of Manhattan's oldest roads became its newest hot spot

Ulysses

The little cobblestone street that some say was the first ever paved in New York City stretches no longer than a football field but has more restaurants and bars than some neighborhoods.

If you've never been to Stone St. in the Financial District, here's what you're missing: Four pubs, six restaurants, outdoor picnic tables, a patisserie, an oyster bar, huge lofts in historic buildings, a wine bar, cobblestones and some larger-than-life personalities. After all, a former beekeeper from SpartaGreece, who began work as a busboy in the neighborhood in 1956 owns half the street.
