Greenwich Village Neighborhood
Stately brownstones, pre-war walk-ups, and pricey doorman buildings sit side by side in this livable enclave. Its leafy streets and plentiful greenspaces make it an ideal spot for families with young children; while sidewalk cafes, upscale eateries, and thriving nightlife attract young singles and couples. NYU students haunt University Place and Broadway for casual ethnic eateries, funky vintage shops, and the world-famous Strand Bookstore. And Washington Square Park—where speed chess players, parents pushing strollers, students, activists, street performers, and tourists all gather—is the perfect microcosm of the Village itself.
