Greenwich Village has a great history and is a must stop destination while visiting Manhattan. The brownstones are very well kept, and also very expensive to purchase!
We enjoyed our tour around the neighborhood, and our lunch here.
If there is such a thing as a relaxed part of Manhattan then I suppose it could only be Greenwich Village. By comparison to up and midtown this is only moderately manic. There are some nice bars and restaurants but you will pay handsomely for...More
The Village has been known as one of the Bohemian, creative centers of New York City. It's been an area associated with counter-culture and avant garde artistry for decades. Some of the Village's famous residents through the years include Salvador Dali, Jackson Pollack, Andy Warhol,...More
We’ve spent the past 9 days in NYC and even though everything is fantastic Greenwich village comes out on top for us. Wandering down Bleeker street on a Saturday you stumble across markets and fantastic restaurants. I recommend doing the Greenwich village walking tour for...More
We were fortunate to have Kevin as our tour guide. His humour and knowledge of the area made the tour most enjoyable. His little antidotes of various sites added an extra dimension to the tour and highlighted the changes that have occurred over the past...More
Our first experience visiting Greenwich Village was via a food tour. I highly recommend this approach to visit this area of NYC. After which we (wife and friends) walked around the area and visited the village the next day for dinner. This is a pretty...More
If you want to chill out for a spell in a bohemian park where you’ll see everything from musicians, capoeiristas, crystal healers, dog portraitists, poets, resistance fighters, chess masters, and sunbathers, this is the park for you. It’s where the locals hang out together.
The tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village with its cafes, bars and restaurants, Jazz clubs and Off-Broadway theaters will enthuse you as a visitor.Stayed at Bedford St adjoining the West village. The place is well connected by the 1,2,3 A, C,E and the PATH public transportation....More
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
Paul says it all, but it is a charming area with cobbled streets and wonderful shops and restaurants. The Hy-Line walking park is well worth a visit, as is the new Whitney. Chelsea Market is an extraordinary warren of food... More
Paul says it all, but it is a charming area with cobbled streets and wonderful shops and restaurants. The Hy-Line walking park is well worth a visit, as is the new Whitney. Chelsea Market is an extraordinary warren of food shops and restaurants with every kind of offering available.

I lived over 20 yrs in the area and am a photographer. If you are looking for buildings and historic charm, some of the oldest homes in the area are west of Ave. of The Americans (6th Ave,) and Bleecker St. In the next blocks you will pass Cornelia, Jones, Morton, Barrow, Grove (and cross 7th Ave,). till you reach Christopher St. You should walk left/south(mostly) and north off of Bleecker to see them. Chumly's, one of NYC's oldest bars and speakeasy is on Bedford - there is no sign. The original Sesame St. is on Barrow St.
The other option is to go east on Bleecker and there you will pass where the folk clubs and coffee houses, some still there. Don't miss MacDougal St. - 1960's music center!
If it's interesting people you want - they are everywhere.
