Welcome to Greenwich Village
The heart and soul of lower Manhattan.
For most of the 20th century, Greenwich Village was the center of downtown culture. In the 60s, the Village was the birthplace of the beatnik generation. Allen Ginsberg was known to pop up at Cafe Reggio, while Bob Dylan was a regular performer at Cafe Wha.
“The Village” is a beloved mix of the best that New York has to offer, including the iconic Washington Square Park. A diverse group of residents all contribute to the energy of this lively yet well-behaved slice of Manhattan.
What to Expect
A bustling, centrally located neighborhood.
During the day, the Village moves at a brisk, industrious pace. There’s almost always a consistent level of foot traffic moving throughout the neighborhood.
Well-balanced. Active days blend into fun, relaxing nights.
The entertainment never ends in the Village. The neighborhood is a popular meet-up spot for get-togethers amongst friends.
A neighborhood that's far removed from typical NYC to-and-fro.
Greenwich Village rarely ever gets excessively congested, but streets are almost never completely quiet, either.
Generally expensive, but plenty of options across a diverse blend of walk-ups, brownstones, and doorman buildings.
Some residents might find pre-war walk-ups on side streets, but will often pay for the idyllic location rather than space.
