178 THOMPSON ST in Greenwich Village

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 178 Thompson St

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.
