Greenwich Village has been the bohemian birthplace of art, social, and literary movements. Today, its central location in Manhattan has established it as an affluent, aspirational neighborhood with a rich history. With an active downtown vibe, Greenwich Village is decorated with numerous low-rise townhouses, courtyards, and gardens. Washington Square Park is at the center of this neighborhood, where residents, tourists, local artists, street performers, and just about everyone else coalesce.
This neighborhood is full of activities. It’s stocked with iconic restaurants, movie theaters and comedy clubs. Families in the townhouses and brownstones spend time in the parks, while NYU and The New School students hang around the local bar scene and shops, absorbing in the area’s strong cultural and historical legacies. Greenwich Village is a wonderful neighborhood for anyone, but especially for those who appreciate the activity and history of New York City.
