Greenwich Village

The meandering, cobbled and tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village give this Manhattan neighborhood a distinct European feel. The epicenter of Bohemian and alternative culture, Greenwich Village’s famous charm lies in its low-rise townhouses, quaint gardens, and a buzzing, trendy population. Numerous counter-culture figures and artists were proud to call the Village home, and its lack of redevelopment means their presence can still be felt.
