The zigzagging streets and charming brownstones of the Greenwich Village have a far more laid back atmosphere than most neighborhoods in the city. The center of New York's gay and student communities lies here, with a variety of funky shopping and nightlife including jazz, rock and dance clubs, restaurants, bars, and cafes. By the early 1900s, the Village had fully established itself as the center of radical thinking in the United States. Famous reformers, artists, and intellectuals all gathered here and many still do. Do not miss a visit to Washington Square Park as it will take your breath away!
The Village was the best part of my trip to NYC. During the daytime you get to enjoy the architecture and shopping. If you're not into that, hit it at night and see every kind of person there is to see, sample different clubs, party to hearts desire! Then you always have a designated driver to take you home (The Subway!).
This was a place with so much character and great atmosphere. It felt like stepping back in time. I noticed right away the unique and special architecture and style of the buildings. After our long stroll, we decided to have dinner in one of the small restaurants on a small alley. The food was good, friendly service and pleasant ambience.
Visiting the Village was the ultimate NY experiance. The atmosphere, the little shops and bars were all amazing. If you go you really should check out the "Red Lion" bar off Bleaker, just sitting out on the patio people watching was great and then go right around the corner to "Arturo's Pizza" best pizza i have ever had....
we had a flying visist here looking for a particular resturant/pub which we were told about.Everyone here was very friendly and helped us find what we were looking for.
jeckyll and hyde pub fantastic is a must to visit.Haunted pub and something happens every 10 mins while your in there, great entertainment.
Reminds me of classy writers' and artists' life styles. Here you will get to feel how people enjoy their days with their own ideas of how life should be. Greenwich Village has a personality. New Yorkers are proud of the classy atmosphere in Greenwich. You can't skip this place on your journey to NYC.
The Village is home to the weirdest people & stores on Earth. Not only are they home to the infamous "Halloween Parade," their lists of inhabitants include everyone from XXX shops to about 1 tattoo parlor every 5 or so blocks. Anything goes in the villiage, you can and will see just about ANYTHING, like a random Monday night, when a drunk cross-dressing man desides that he wants to take time out to pee (girlie style) on the corner of a (dare I not name the streets) at only 10pm at night. To understand what I'm talking about, just come to the Halloween Parade & you will understand just why The Village is the "Home of the Free & Truely Weird."
I thought this was a pretty cool little quaint place. We walked through at about
5 pm and felt a little uncomfortable walking around at that time. We did stop in a few really cute stores, but I found them a little price. I'd go back, but earlier in the day.
In NYC you must walk through Greenwich Village from the historic New York University buildings and coffehouses to the shops and vendors that surround the blocks between the Hudson River all the way east to the Bowery. Leather, jewelry,clothing,music,and of course food are just some of the items you can buy and experience the "only in New York" feeling and pulse on the streets.
