Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village perfectly combines a bit of the East Village’s glorified grunge with a bit of the West Village’s tony charm. A quintessential New York City neighborhood loaded with history and immortalized on film perhaps more than any other, the Village remains a hotbed of creativity and youthful energy. Look closely and you’ll spot famous actors camouflaged amongst NYU students, dining at the area’s esteemed restaurants, or jogging around Washington Square Park The park, with its iconic marble arch and famous fountain, has served as a meeting place for all ages from all walks of life — artists, poets, musicians, skateboarders chess players — and offers some of the best people watching in town. Surrounding it are streets filled with artsy movie theatres, comedy clubs, live musievenues and curated independent shops. Best perks: Washington Square Park, legendary restaurants like the Gotham Bar & Grill, the energy of NYU and the IFC & Angelika movie theatres
