Greenwich Village
The true New Yorker secretly believes that people living anywhere else have to be, in some sense, kidding.
-John Updike

Wander amid the streets of the Greenwich Village you’ll find yourself transported: the din of traffic recedes, the world grows a bit greener, and you’re left with the sound of the murmur of your thoughts as you explore this neighborhood’s charmed labyrinth.

Extending down from 14th Street to Hudson Street, and bounded by the Hudson River and the West and 6th Avenue on the East, Greenwich Village made its name as the epicenter of the Bohemian lifestyle in the 50’s and 60’s. Fed by the fresh energy of New York University and The New School, it remains a hotbed of intellectual and artistic activity, and institutions as the Village Vanguard, Patchin Place, and the iconic Jefferson Market Library do much to insure its cool demeanor remains intact.

Today Greenwich Village is all of that and more: it’s beguiling 19th century townhouses brush up against the refined chic of contemporary condominiums and the Gold Coast’s majestic Pre-war co-ops lining up along 5th Avenue. World-class boutiques and cafes share sidewalk space with the likes of Bigelow’s Pharmacy and The Strand bookstore. All of these disparate spokes converge at hallowed Washington Square, where Marcel Duchamp once declared “The Free Republic of Greenwich Village” from atop the Triumphal Arch, and where today, Villagers comingle and continue to forge the identify of Manhattan’s most unconventional community.
