Greenwich Ave was a great place to shop, walk, people watch, eat and relax. It was a special street, it was charming and very friendly, many small businesses, unique stores, casual spots to eat and a mix of businesses. The chain stores moved in, pushed out many of the small businesses and it has lost its charm. Parking is a... More

Greenwich Ave isn't just for window shopping, good eats, and people-watching any more. It's a must-walk for PokemonGo players! The PokeStops are abundant and you'll likely bump into some other trainers on your stroll. Get some fresh air and good food while you shop and walk your buddy on Greenwich Ave.

We really enjoyed our visit to Greenwich Avenue. Basically every store you can imagine on one long block. Great feature was that there was plenty of parking. Great place to visit on beautiful day like today. It was a great street to shop.

We moved into Greenwich in the early 1990s when Greenwich Avenue had a Woolworths and many Mom&Pop stores. Over the years, these sort of establishments have disappeared, being replaced by many locally-owned boutiques as well as global luxury brands. While not Rodeo Drive or Worth Avenue, it is awfully close. Still worth window shopping on a brisk autumn afternoon with... More

Lived there for 20 years and it had a quaintness with small town appeal. Now only high end stores exist with the exception of CVS and some nail salons. One restaurant which is still there and always fun is Meli Melo, a great French creperie. Unless you're ready to pay super high prices in the designer stores, browse and enjoy... More

LOVE LOVE LOVE. Whether you're looking for a cheap store or a super expensive store, you'll definitely buy something during your time on the ave. Even if you don't buy anything it's great to walk up and down the ave. Even the food places are wonderful! However, parking is horrendous. If you can find a spot, consider yourself lucky.

We enjoyed our walk along the avenue. Shops are all high end and very expensive, so we didn't buy anything and didn't even go into many places. One of the main attractions seemed to be to eat, and there were some charming cafe places. Parking was difficult and require change for the meters. Overall I am glad for the experience... More

My wife and I recently visited and walked both sides of the Avenue from top to bottom and Back. Woolworths is gone and in its place is Saks Fifth Avenue. Many old time shops are now replaced by hi end glitz. The hardware and gun shop are gone. The police are still friendly and control the traffic. They still wear... More
