Welcome to Greenwich Village

Lively and musical New York City neighborhood with diverse residents and a friendly atmosphere

Nestled in the middle of lower Manhattan lies one of the city's most vibrant and charming communities. Greenwich Village has been the heart of the city for generations, acting as a haven for artists, innovators, and young professionals from around the world. The distinct New York charm felt throughout the community is just one of the many reasons why “The Village” is one of the most popular locations in the city. 
Originally used as farmland, the area quickly took a downturn when it became the home of New York’s very first Penitentiary. However, in 1822 a yellow fever outbreak forced many New York residents to seek out the healthier air and landscape offered by Greenwich Village, which began its turn into a more beloved and popular location. 
Today, Greenwich Village is known for its stunning architecture, eclectic entertainment, popular restaurants, and numerous cultural sites. Homeowners love being able to escape into some of the city’s most beautiful green spaces before heading over to a quaint cafe on their way to work, and the beautiful tree-lined streets make morning and evening commutes feel like a stroll through the park.
