Loved Greenwich Village

Great selection of small shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Really very different from the madness of Midtown where we were staying.

This quirky, trendy section of NYC used to be where all the hippies and counterculture hung out. It still is that, though somewhat more well heeled hippies, given the real estate prices in the area. Still its a fun place to visit on a Saturday afternoon for the shopping or evening for the nightlife

Greenwich Village has so much to see ,we were there four days and rarely left. Washington Park is beautiful full of life right in the heart of NYU. People are friendly, great food and culture.

This park and the arch (Washington Square) has been featured in countless films. It is a very pretty park with a large fountain. NYU was graduating the day we were there, and all the grads were taking pictures. Very pretty, very lively with lots of cool people.

I love the west village. Great places to eat, fun head shops and great blues and jazz clubs. Make sure to go to the crossroads of Bleeker & McDougal streets, where the old coffee shops dotted each corner.

Wandering the streets of soho and Greenwich village were easily the best part of our New York trip. The atmosphere was just amazing. There is an inexplicable magic to the place and can't recommend this activity highly enough!

I like the village though a lot of the individual shops that made the place so special have closed, which is a shame. Still, it's a nice place and houses aren't as high here, so feels less claustrophobic. Probably the plave I would like to live if I had to live in NYC

Iconic New York neighborhood. If you like architecture and people watching, get there, grab some coffee and start walking.

We were able to get some sun and listen to some cool jazz. The band was the backdrop for some folks dancing; particularly an elderly gentleman who seemed to be having a marvelous time dancing with young college students.

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
