Learn more about living in our Greenwich Village apartments
Sometimes, a name says it all, which is the case for New York’s Greenwich Village. Home to counterculture, NYU, the famous Village Voice, a bygone Bohemian vibe and starving artists, desirable Greenwich Village apartments and lofts, and streets with sidewalk cafes and a distinct European feel, the neighborhood has commercialized and transformed over the years. But despite the neighborhood’s changes, Greenwich Village maintains notoriety based on name alone. Professionals, students, artists, creatives and families flock to our Lower Manhattan area for all the best New York experiences away from touristy crowds.
At the heart of the Village, just steps from historic and highly desirable Greenwich Village apartments, is Washington Square Park. Once the go-to place for the neighborhood’s performance artists and Bohemians to congregate is still a spot for musicians, street artists and locals who want to stretch out and enjoy the city’s best people-watching. Nearby theaters, galleries, film centers, performance venues and NYU halls provide a modern take on the artist-driven community of Greenwich Village of the past, and writers and students pack the neighborhood’s coffee shops and cafes.
Businesses and restaurants in Greenwich Village are a unique mix of high-end and budget-friendly, thanks to the mix of highly sought-after Greenwich Village apartments and increasing property values, as well as the proximity to NYU and its student population. It’s not hard to find hidden gem ramen spots next to sleek, Zagat-rated farm-to-table restaurants, or lounges with hand-crafted cocktails across from dives serving cheap beer. But no matter where you go and whatever your budget, locals love Greenwich Village’s friendly community, a place where local business owners and patrons learn your name if you go often enough.
Although the counterculture movements the Village is known for are largely a thing of the past, the convenience of Greenwich Village remains. The riverfront neighborhood is close to 11 major transit stations and plenty of bus stops that service the area on a regular basis. Getting to and from other corners of the city (or even across the Hudson River to New Jersey) is a snap, thanks to the proximity to the Holland Tunnel and the West Street thoroughfare that runs alongside the waterfront. With a modern focus on neighborhood amenities, a current take on the area’s Bohemian culture and public art, and plenty of history nestled between local shops and Greenwich Village apartments, the Lower Manhattan neighborhood isn’t going anywhere but up.
