Welcome to Greenwich Village
One of the most coveted neighborhoods in all of Manhattan, Greenwich Village is an iconic enclave offering a balanced blend of quiet blocks and exciting avenues, attracting city dwellers to its lively bars and restaurants on nights and weekends. Greenwich Village houses the infamous Washington Square Park, which includes 9.75 acres of green parkspace as well as an iconic fountain and the Washington Square Arch. Tree-lined townhouse streets surround the park as well as historic pre-war buildings along lower Fifth Avenue, known as “The Gold Coast.” A seven-block stretch along lower Fifth Avenue from Washington Square Park, The Gold Coast extends north to 14th Street and was the former home to several historic figures, including Eleonor Roosevelt.
Greenwich Village is in close proximity to the city’s top downtown schools and is centrally-located close to several transportation options. It is also closely connected to Union Square, which includes additional transportation options, several well-known retailers, and the Union Square Farmers’ Market.
