“Neat niche in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Spent an afternoon walking around the village. The shops are quaint, lots of little cafés and restaurants. If you are up for a change of scenery from the fast paced city, this is it. Loved the tiny tree lined streets, architecture, and bohemian feel of parts of this area.

“Really lovely place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Went here a couple of days before Halloween and it was fantastic to see the houses dressed up. The streets are really pretty and mainly tree lined and kept very clean. Lots of individual stores and cafes and the people seem to be friendly and helpful. It is worlds away from Times Square and Broadway and well worth a visit

“Quite inverse of Times Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

If you drive to here straight from Times Square and blind folded, you might think that you are in the different cities.

I love this area because you could find some nice little stores / cafe at one of the streets.

It's very quite and beautiful area to take a random stroll, just don't expect any significant landmark except for the cathedral

If you're in New York, you've got to go to the village. Interesting people, great food, and fun shops.

“Loved the Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Greenwich Village is such a peaceful neighborhood. If we ever return to NYC, I think we will book a hotel in the Village.

The older buildings were nice and well-kept, and there are dozens of cafes and small shops to tour.
