Known as a place to be for so many reasons I just love the vibe here, nothing specific I can put my finger on just liked the overall feel.

One of my favorites neighborhood, Greenwich Village is what I picture when I think of New York. With winding streets, quaint shops, and great restaurants Greenwich Village is a must-visit destination.

Greenwich Village is a less touristy part of Manhattan but it's a great neighborhood and home to Washington Square Park and a number of good small restaurants, and unique boutique clothing stores.

One of the best neighborhoods in NYC. Great boutiques, music stores, cafés, bookstores, and restaurants. Check out 10th street between 5th and 6th ave. It is one of the prettiest blocks in the city!

One of the more attractive neighborhoods in the city. What's not to like about Washington Square Park and mom and pop retail.

The proximity to NYU makes things a bit crowded and pulls them down market a but this is a must see in the city.

The Village is an entity all on its own. Hip, edgy, and slightly eclectic - though not as glitzy as SoHo. It's a great place to stroll around a park, sip a latte, or just watch the community pass you by.

I love Greenwich Village. It's one of my favorite enclaves in New York City due to its cobble stone streets, and mix of cafes, bohemian boutiques, and restaurants. When spring arrives, the cherry blossom trees emerge in full force, making Greenwich Village more lovely and picturesque.

I really like Greenwich Village. I spent quite a lot of time here during my most recent trip to NYC. It has a more neighborhood-y feel compared to most of New York City. Good restaurants and cute boutiques are all over this area!

If you've never been to New York before and you want to get a feel for the Greenwich Village scene, hang out in Washington Square Park. The park is named for the triumphal arch of George Washington, which you can see all the way up 5th avenue from the 30's on down. Washington Square is bordered by a number of NYU buildings and some of the Village's best cafes. Washington Square also has built in chess tables where you can take on the masters of the streets. The street food around the square is usually quite good and cheap.
