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.

  • It was one of the districts that I liked the most about my visit to NY. Narrow streets, houses with fronts English style, many trees... Yes, a district extremely picturesque. I really enjoyed the walk through Greenwich Village. I recommend visiting the Washington Square Park when it is run through this neighbourhood.

  • Valley to bears repeating the title to give more emphasis: the best place in NY!! I had the opportunity to go in that area in my penultimate day in New York, when he was already tired of all that rush of Midtown and the light of Times, mainly because my hotel was in this region, but this place left me completely in love with NY, made me love this town, don't forget to go and please also don't forget to swing by the Magnolia Bakery.
