Greenwich Village

A charming escape from the hustle and bustle

Greenwich Village is a thoroughly modern New York City neighborhood that has been home to some of the most iconic moments in American history – from the Bohemian movement to Bob Dylan. People come from all over the world to experience “The Village,” whether it’s taking in a performance on MacDougal Street or enjoying a lazy day of picnicking and listening to the sounds of street musicians in Washington Square Park. This neighborhood is a popular destination for not only tourists but also New Yorkers and locals from surrounding areas to meet up for casual cocktails and diverse food options. As time marches on, this iconic neighborhood retains the same charm that has drawn people in for decades. 

In addition to being an artists’ haven and the cradle of the modern LGBTQ+ movement, Greenwich Village contains two private colleges, New York University (NYU) and The New School. It also has a bustling performing arts scene and is home to many off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway theaters.

NoHo

Just North of Houston Street lies the tiny nook known as NoHo, which packs a lot of life into a 6-block section of town. Formerly occupied by warehouses and not much more, this neighborhood now features storefronts, cafes, and residential dwellings carved out of former factory spaces. NoHo is located at the core of the most traversed Manhattan neighborhoods, which means plenty of transit options. 

The neighborhood boasts a delightful array of establishments that include all types of food and drink options for both locals and international visitors. Lafayette Street offers direct access to exceptional New York eateries, including Il Buco, the best Italian restaurant in NoHo. The neighborhood proudly houses the Angelika Film Center, a beloved New York institution, as well as other cultural escapes such as the Public Theater. It was also once home to artists like Andy Warhol and the legendary CBGB music club.
