Located on the west side of Lower Manhattan, Greenwich Village is arguably New York City’s most desirable neighborhood. Bounded by Broadway to the east and the Hudson River to the west, the Village was once considered the world’s Bohemian capital, where artists and writers occupied and influenced the neighborhood.
Today, the Village is characterized by historic brownstones, tree-lined streets, quaint boutiques, NYU, and some of the city’s best restaurants and its most famous live entertainment venues. The Village borders some of New York’s hottest submarkets with Chelsea to the northwest, Flatiron to the north, Union Square to the northeast, East Village to the east, and SoHo to the south, making it an ideal location for tourists and locals alike. It is also strategically located within minutes of Midtown Manhattan, home to 280 million square feet of office space and by far the largest central business district in the United States.
The area is served by multiple subway lines, including the B, D, F, M, L and 1, 2 and 3 trains.
