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

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire afternoon in Greenwich Village. Visited the Friends apartment, Carrie's brownstone, the bakery, shopping. The whole vibe was nice and a little slower paced. Just loved the area and will return.

Yes, this where the classic t.v. show FRIENDS took place. And it is the best place in the city to find a coffee shop and sit with friends. If the relaxed, artsy, comfortable neighborhoods interest you, go to Greenwich Village.

You may get a little lost, as the streets are little more confusing in some places, but just enjoy the walk through the real New York atmosphere.

What was once something bohemian is now residential, somewhat gentrified but also full of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops, some quirky, many just the general brands you can find elsewhere in NYC.

We came here several times during the HOHO bus tour and if you want to get away from much of the usual tourists haunts then this is worth a few hours.

Loved this area of the city! So beautiful and quiet and so much history. Great restaurants and fun things like the Friends apartment building and the brownstone and bakery from Sex & the City.

This is one of the most entertaining areas of New York City that is not touristy. 5th Avenue and the Times Square area are cool, but also full of tourists and people that have no idea what they are doing. Greenwich Village is full of restaurants, bars, comedy clubs and anything you can think of. It really shines at night time in all of the various areas where the city truly never sleeps. Be sure to see a show at the Comedy Cellar when you are in the area. The bustling nightlife is something to behold.
