Washington Square Park is on the edge of the district, start there, great park and Monument to Washington in the form of the Arch de Triumph in Paris, the district is steeped in hippie history and fun to walk around. Tour1 do a great walking tour.

Both a neighborhood and a destination this area offers something for everyone. Don't miss Washington Square Park with the newly restored Arch and the surrounding park. The streets include those with cobblestones and a variety of places for food and drink. NYU can dominate but look closely for signs that this is home for many nonstudents too.

7th and 14th was one of my first NYC spots. Nothing amazing about it, but it's right in the middle of everything else. Soho, Chelsea, Lower East Side, Tribeca. East and West Village. You name it.

The only area of New York we enjoyed (Soho/Greenwich etc.) Everywhere is busy, expensive, lacking in character, rude etc. Only Soho and Greenwich were friendly, had boutique shops and restaurants and a more relaxed atmosphere!

went for a wander around, bumped into a local who realised we were tourists and told us some history which was lovely of him. Then his wife and kids arrived having just made a 40mile round trip for a Cronut..dedication to greasy food right there. Loved it...just spent a few hours wandering.

Stayed in this neighbourhood on my second trip to NYC. LOVED it. Food, shops, culture. Always something to see. I really recommend staying in this area if you visit. Day dreamed about all of the spaces that were for rent and places up for sale. Great for restaurants and book shops, all sorts of bits and bobbins.

Just slightly behind(in my opinion) walking the West Village is Greenwich Village, although there are more musically historical places to see here. Many great restaurants and parks, there is nothing like walking the west side downtown of Manhattan.

A slow walk through the Village is very interesting, enjoying viewing and sometimes visiting the quaint shops in the area. Admiring the architecture, the old and beautiful homes.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
