Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village, often simply called "the Village" by locals, is a well-known area of Manhattan. It is also sometimes called "West Village." Although it was once an artists' haven, the birthplace of the Beat Movement, and the bohemian capital of the world, it neighbourhood has changed and commercialized, much to the chagrin of some locals and tourists alike. The avant garde feel has somewhat faded, but it's still a fun place to explore.

  • Attractive residential area
  • Washington Square Park
  • Former Beat Movement capital
  • Tree-lined streets
  • Preserved historic districts
  • Schools and universities

It is a mostly residential neighborhood that is home to singles and upper middle class families. There are different kinds of people living in Greenwich Village, but they are mostly high-income singles in their 20s. Many are white collar workers and many have bachelor's degrees or even graduate degrees. The population is predominantly Caucasian, followed by Asian, Hispanic and others.

The days of artists, beatniks and bohemians might be gone, but residents of the Village are keen on preserving what is left of its charm. These local residents have a strong sense of community and are proud of Greenwich Village's history and significance. They, along with preservation groups, have successfully fought against development, trying to preserve the historic architecture and integrity of the area.

The local residents have done a good job. The tree-lined streets are pretty and here you will see attractive 19th century row houses, mid-rise apartments, and some single-family walk-ups. There are several interesting preserved areas including the Greenwich Village Historic District, the Waterfront, the Meatpacking District, and the Weehawken Street Historic District.

As you explore Greenwich Village, you will see several schools as well as several institutes of high education, including Cooper Union and New York University around Washington Square Park. Washington Square Park, with its famous arch, is an important neighborhood landmark, although there are several other quiet parks in the area. Theaters, clubs, restaurants and bars abound in Greenwich Village.
