A small neighborhood in Greenwich Village, New York City, located on Thompson Street, between Bleecker Street and West 3rd Street. It is named for the plethora of 24-hours per day chess shops and on-street chess boards that line the street.
Overheard on the NYC subway: "You're a NYU student? Where do you live?" "Yup. I have a tiny apartment in the chess ghetto."
