Greenwich Village has been inspiring bohemians for almost a century. In the 1960s, 8th Street was the closest New York got to San Francisco's hippie Haight Street, but now it's one of the most expensive (and exclusive) neighborhoods in New York, and home to the ever-expanding NYU.

It's a fine destination for taking walks, people-watching in one of NYC's best parks—Washington Square Park—and catching a jazz show, cabaret night or concert.

Map of Greenwich Village and travel information

Greenwich Village in downtown Manhattan stretches from Houston Street to 14th Street, and between Fourth Avenue (then the Bowery) and Sixth Avenue. Some conflate the West Village (W Houston St to W 14th St; Hudson River to Sixth Ave, minus the Meatpacking District) and Greenwich Village, but those people are wrong. Very, very wrong. Greenwich Village proper is a relatively small area with Washington Square Park at its center, which makes it perfect for an idle stroll. Use our map to find major streets, top New York attractions and subway stops.
