Greenwich Village is a slower paced part of the city, but still has all the charm. It has a lot of greenery and benches. Musicians out and about,

Parking is always difficult in NYC no matter what area you are in but not impossible. If you are patient and willing to drive up and down the streets it will happen (just remember streets are one way in manhattan) if you want to park on the street you just have to drive around and be patient. Eventually someone will pull out it's just the luck of the draw people are always coming and going in NYC and if you are at the right place at the right time you will get a space. The further west you park in the villiage the easier it might be to find a space on the street just make sure you read the street signs carefully or you could get a hefty ticket or even towed if you are parked incorrectly. Also be careful when you open your car door cause bike riders frequently pass by and you don't want to hit someone and also make sure you lock your doors when you leave your car to avoid any break ins. If you want to be adventuous why not find a cheaper parking lot around 11th or 12th street midtown (The further west you go the cheaper the lot). Then you can take a #1 (Red line Local Subway downtown to Christoper Street, which is in the heart of the west villiage) or the # 2 train which runs on the center track 1 stop downtown from 42nd Street & broadway to 14th street where the West Villiage begins). That way you can walk around the villiage without having to find your car when you are ready to leave and just take one of the red line trains uptown to 42nd street and go back to your car. Lots can be very expensive but you can always find a coupon online just google parking lot coupons in google and check it out. I hope this helped you don't be scared just have fun.
