Owner description: Like a small town within Manhattan, the Village has narrow tree-lined streets and brick townhouses.

Greenwich Village was very trendy... then it gave way to SoHo... which eventually relented to the meatpacking district (which I think is the current 'cool spot' - though, admittedly, I'm not the best guide on 'trendy'). Greenwich Village is still a very cool place to spend a night - just dont expect the 'in crowd' (and that's good, I think!).

Once the center of NYC counterculture, now this area is a yuppie haven... as well as a weird mixture of people, too easily impressed by anything that NYC has to offer. A perfect example of modern nothingness celebrated as "culture."

Greenwich Village in New York City is a great place to get lost in, and I mean that in the best way. New York is mainly a grid and a difficult to get lost but in Greenwich Village you can find yourself on the corner of West 4th Street and West 11th Street. It makes you say "Huh?" Still, if you go with it and just chill out Greenwich Village is a joy filled with great restaurants and hidden treasures like Grove Court—the location of O'Henry's classic story "The Last Leaf", or the White Horse Pub, where Dylan Thomas was a regular. History abounds. One of our favorite restaurants is a place called, "One If By Land Two If By Sea". It's a very high end, romantic restaurant, but it used to be Aaron Burr's coach House. He was Thomas Jefferson's Vice President (1800-1804), and the man who shot Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Speaking of that, the house where Hamilton died from his wound is also in Greenwich Village. Treat yourself: Get lost in Greenwich Village.

Get out of midtown and head down here where you'll walk cobblestone streets, into alleyways and winding streets flanked by interesting little shops. Hidden gem: Try to find Grove Court and peek inside (it's private). You could be in Dickens' London!
