Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village is the current location of New York University, and has also been the home of many famous writers and artists. Greenwich Village is located in Southern Manhattan on the west side of town.

Formerly nothing more than marshland, Greenwich is well-known as the home of artistic and bohemian cultures since it’s establishment as a village and separate community from Manhattan. Greenwich Village is home to the New York University and Washington Square Park. Washington Square Park is filled with people bustling about, from skateboarders to jugglers and reveals the melting pot of culture that New York possesses.

Greenwich Village is far different from the grid laced layout of Manhattan, as Greenwich possesses several cobblestone streets, named streets rather than numbered streets, and streets that possess unusual curvatures. Certain areas of Greenwich Village are famous for their gay populations and many lively bars can be found in this part of New York City.
