Greenwich Village, New York City

(4.6/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Regarded as a haven for creative types from the late 19th century till the late 20th century, Greenwich Village served as the birthplace for the Beat generation and 1960s counterculture in the East Coast. Though a victim of gentrification, the Village--as it's known by locals--still possesses a strong community identity. The best way to get a feel for this is to stroll through the area. Make sure to stop by the historic Washington Square Park and the nearby Grey Art Gallery, which houses New York University's art collection. The neighborhood also boasts a strong performing arts scene with many theaters. To learn more about the area's important history and architecture, take a guided tour.

  • I went to Greenwich Village to see the Friends Building and eating a wonderful Magnolia cupcake Bakery.

  • Interesting site to visit, but it's not a must, good for walking and sitting in the Plaza to get some rest after long walks

  • Devoted half a day to explore this quaint neighborhood. Housing, roads, green will surprise you and leave you enchanted by their specialties. A place to enjoy with calm and where you can find among the best restaurants-taverns in New York without spending to bills prohibitive.
