I really enjoyed Greenwich Village! The stores were fun and interesting. There are so many yummy places for lunch or treats. I loved Do (the new cookie dough place), Bleecker Street Pizza, Artichoke Pizza, and Mamoun's. Lots of streets to wander through and enjoy.

I like walking around in Greenwich. It is usually a lot cheaper and better to eat and has good diversity and cultural life. At night is wonderful for couples and friends looking for a different option than Times Square.

I really like this neighborhood for nightlife. It's crowded, there's tons of options open. I recommend coming on an off night or early because Fri-Sun you'll be waiting in long lines. Tons of college students but not necessarily obnoxious. Lot's of cool music and historic coffee shops for the day time.

Our visit to this area was two-fold: one to see the park and two to try the new rave of Cookie Dough Confections. We waited in line to get our tasty treat for over an hour and a half.

The Village is an interesting and fascinating neighborhood that abuts NYU. Lots of famous clubs and nightlife on every block. Cute and delicious restaurants and bars that cater to locals, tourists and students alike. Good area to walk and explore day or night if you have the time to roam and shop around.

I like this park. It is fun to people watch. Lots of students and pet owners because they have several dog enclosures. Great place to have a coffee and read.

East and West Village are distinctly different so see both sides. These arease seem to never sleep. Try to have something other than Italian or Middle Eastern food, just to give yourself a challenge to try all the varieties.

I love this neighborhood! Walk around experience the shops, bars, and public spaces. Snap a picture under the Washington Square Park Arch. Have a slice at Bens, drink at the cubbyhole catch a show at the comedy cellar. On nice days a man wheels a full sized piano out to Washington Square and plays.

If you love the brownstone lanes with gorgeous tree covering the Village is for you. It makes for gorgeous walks exploring the neighborhood. Also, the vibe at night is fun with all the bars, eateries and comedy clubs..also NYU makes it a great place to head for a night out.

I went to grammar school in the Village. There is still a great deal of charm in spots, though it has changed over the years. Some throwbacks to the 1960's still around (Cafe Wha). The park is great in summer.

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.
