Amazing neighborhood

We stayed in the West Village and LOVED the artist vibe, without all of the tourists. We found several small shops and places to eat that were swamped with regulars.

Enjoyed walking around Greenwich Village. Seeing the Brownstones a walking tour will give you the history of Greenwich and the surroundings.

There are so many great neighbourhoods to explore in NYC and this is about the best with great 19th century architecture and wonderful boutiques and cafe's. Not as snotty as Soho with the University to keep it grounded a bit and don't miss the fun Washington Square.

Booked a Foods of NY Tours walking tour: The Original Greenwich Village Food and Culture Walking Tour! Could not have been better to learn about the "old neighborhood" while eating our way around. Lots of sights to see, cool architecture, nice people and shopkeepers, too. Would highly recommend. Ask for Cindy if she's in town - a fabulous tour guide.

This is my favourite part of New York, it is perfect for a relaxing brunch, a walk, shopping in one off places- it has a vibe around it of chilled relaxation. There is always something to see, it is perfect for the people watcher and architecture fan.

Some of my favorite moments while traveling involve wandering neighborhoods and discovering shops, restaurants and out of the way places. My favorite neighborhood in New York is Greenwich Village. It still maintains the character you read about from the beatniks and the hippies in the 1960s. As a gay man, going to Stonewall Inn and seeing the location of the... More

Greenwich Village is the older section of Manhattan, which makes it much more charming than most of the island. Interesting shops and restaurants are everywhere. I love to stroll the tree-lined streets and just wander around. The area is loosely south of 14th Street and north of Houston Street, bordered by Park Avenue on the east and Seventh Avenue on...

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.
