  what's this neighborhood like?

Greenwich is a charming Manhattan neighborhood of historic brick townhomes and brownstones, tree-lined streets, and cafes and restaurants. During most days you can catch live performers at the iconic Washington Square Park, or take on one of the regulars there at a game of chess.

The bulk of New York University's campus is within this neighborhood's boundaries, so there is also a large student population.

Greenwich Village is bordered on the north by Chelsea and Union Square, on the east by NoHo, on the south by SoHo, and on the west by the West Village.
