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.
