Legendary in its rich history and cultural significance, Greenwich Village real estate offers a sought-after address in what is perhaps the city’s most famous neighborhood. This lively locale stretches north from Houston Street to 14th Street, and is bordered to the east and west by Broadway and the Hudson River. The the centerpiece of the neighborhood is the famed Washington Square Park, where the landmark, Stanford White-designed Washington Arch commemorates the centennial of George Washington’s presidential inauguration.
A haven for artists, writers, intellectuals and bohemians since the turn of the 20th century, this charming and colorful neighborhood is reminiscent of a European city with its narrow, winding tree-lined streets, timeless courtyards, magnificent 19th-century townhouses and quaint converted stables of Washington Mews. Beautiful, new Greenwich Village real estate offers splendid views overlooking the city and the river. Bleecker Street, the main thoroughfare for Greenwich Village homes, brims with a vibrant selection of shops and restaurants, while long-time establishments in the coffeehouse district are reminders of the Beat Generation
era. Storied nightspots including the Duplex cabaret, the Village Vanguard, and the Bitter End add to the neighborhood’s allure.
New York University is also at the heart of Greenwich Village, with its library, law school and administrative buildings surrounding Washington Square.
