This charming residential neighborhood south of midtown, also called simply the Village, offer a range of cosy restaurant, cool bars, art galleries and interesting peope. It is definitely worth exploring the east side as well. The Gramercy park area is especially green and interesting.

Greenwich Village has a lot of fun, quaint, charming streets with historic buildings. It's fun (for adults) to just walk through the streets and absorb the surroundings. Lots of little places to eat and coffee shops. Great place to get away from noise and crowds. Lots of fun, interesting people too. NYU is in Greenwich Village. Be sure to visit... More

After the hustle and bustle of the Manhattan area most people visit (including us), it was nice to visit another type of New York which was much more laid back and peaceful and also contains Washington Square Park (and the iconic Washington Arch). The added bonus was looking for and finding the "Friends' house" (it's actually the building they shot... More

This is one very charming neighborhood in which you'll find a lot of restaurant and cafe options. It's a good place to walk by without coming across a lot of tourists.

As part of the NYU campus tour, we explored NYU campus to what seemed to be a much calmer part of NYC. Beautiful and truly a breathe of fresh air.

This is a place to see and explore the real NYC. Blocks of shops and eateries galore. When in NY go to the Village.

I enjoy the low key vibe to the village. I felt like I was interacting with the "real" people of NYC. Great bars and restaurants to enjoy quiet evening within the big city. Also is a very nice walking area.

Loved the village. Lots of unique shops and street vendors. One-of-a-kind restaurants and friendly folks. Tree lined streets and community gardens make for more green than a lot of areas in NYC. Map is helpful!
