Greenwich Village

Good transportation Great food Fun nightlife Cool factor LGBT-popular

Greenwich Village, once occupied by brownstones and walkups, is now undergoing an overhaul, as old hospitals and office buildings undergo transitions into luxury buildings.

At the heart of Greenwich Village lies Washington Square Park, where on any given day you can see NYU students huddled against a tree with their reading, local songwriters strumming on their guitars, artists sketching the variegated scene, and even old men playing chess.

Descriptions of 175 Thompson Street

As Greenwich Village was once a rural hamlet, to the north of the earliest European settlement on Manhattan Island, its street layout is more haphazard than the grid pattern of the 19th-century grid plan (based on the Commissioners' Plan of 1811 Greenwich Village was allowed to keep its street pattern in areas west of Greenwich Lane (now Greenwich Avenue) and Sixth Avenue, which were already built up when the plan was implemented, resulting in a neighborhood whose streets are dramatically different, in layout, from the ordered structure of newer parts of town. While some of the formerly named streets (including Factory, Herring and Amity Streets) are now numbered, even they do not always conform to the usual grid pattern when they enter the neighborhood. For example, West 4th Street, which runs east-west outside of the Village, turns and runs north, causing it to intersect with West 10th, 11th, 12th, and ending at West 13th Street. Andrey Fudin (Jun 2012)
It's a neighborhood where haute international cuisine mingles with midnight munchies for delicious dining on every block, where leaf-lined strolls along storied sidewalks lead to notorious nightlife hotspots, where the aura of collegiate academia hovers over bohemian bacchanalias, where chic independent shops and cinemas satisfy the cravings of the avant-garde and the stylish. Greenwich Village's ultra-convenient location is outshined by the eclectic mix of creative college students, purpose-driven professionals, and inquisitive visitors that frequent its cozy, tree-lined streets. Just south of NYU and a short walk from the famous Saint Marks Place which is known for its bars, clubs, cafes, and shopping, places like Coyote Ugly, Bua, and Lunasa are all within walking distance.

Escaping from the formal grid structure that dominates north of 14th Street, wandering the streets of West Village makes you feel as though you've escaped from New York City into some small European city. Many streets are lined with shops, and while main stream stores can still be found, there are many independently owned shops and restaurants to discover. Edward Conroy (Jun 2013)

A/C/E is the absolute closest train station, but if you are in need of the B/D/F/M/N/R trains, AS WELL as the 4/5/6, ALL are only a FEW short blocks away. Ethan Sprague (Aug 2012)
