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!
Anyone can find comfort and acceptance
in the Village. No matter what your unique
interest may be, this is a place for you.
Check out the outdoor markets, Soho
trendy shops, juice bars, art galleries,
or fancy fusion dining. You may even spot
a movie-star or two just strolling in the
streets. The NYU students, the tourists,
the artists, the bikers or park avenue snob -
all are welcome.
No matter what age you are, or where you are in life, young, hip, and sexy is the way Greenwich Village (affectionately known as "The Village") makes you feel!
Anything you want to do can be found there. There are countless eateries, stores and shops.
When I was there I visited a little make-your-own pottery shop called Our Name Is Mud. At that time they had a tile mural as a memorial to the victims of the unfortunate tragedy of 9/11. I painted a tile and added it to the mural. When I went bact to visit "The Village", sure enough, the tile I painted was also displayed. This made me feel like I left a little piece of myself behind in one of my favorite places- Greenwich Village. I highly recommend anyone visitng New York to take a trip to "The Village", because you'll love the way the atmosphere will make you feel.
The village is tha bomb. A whole lot of cool clothing stores and cool smoke shops that sell the coolest bongs. You must be an open minded person when visiting the village. There are alot of homosexuals and interacial couples. Ignorant people need not visit.
grenwich village is where i spent most of my teenage years finding myself. it's great. they have plenty of stores that sell hard to find tshirts, boots and punk rock fashion especially over in the east village on st. marks place. there is a great cheese store right up the road from astors place and a local brewed coffee truck sitting not too far from the local starbucks. it's getting trendier though, i mean a gap is on the corner next to all the masichisit leather clad stores.
The place is a lot fun for the family. We love the places the shop and to eat. The night-lights are like no other. The are somewhat friendly. The beach is clean. We have always felt safe in city with young children.
While I was growing up in New York and attending college, "the Village" was my hangout. I carried a dopy of Ginsberg's "Howl" under my arm, wore my Bohemian garb, and thoughnt that I was really "Hip". Now when I return, it brings back a wave of memories of my days there. It is still home to the young and adventurous.
I like Greenwich Village alot, it has a different atmosphere unlike anywhere else, you can see people of all types, from weird to unusual people at times. Great bars, food, music, and shopping. You can find some great deals on things in some of the shops. I recommend it. In the mood for a different unigue fun experience try the village.
