Greenwich Village

NYC's "Bohemian Capital" and Creative Haven
Greenwich Village, or "The Village", is known for its cozy, energetic community. Here you will find a mix of down-to-earth college students and professionals out and about in this centrally located neighborhood. A day spent in Greenwich Village includes enjoying the weather at Washington Square Park, visiting one of Bleeker's Streets many comedy clubs or music venues, and checking out an art gallery. As the day winds down, relax and dine at world-renowned Mario Batali's Italian restaurant Babbo or any other trendy restaurant. Don't forget to have a drink at the historic Stonewall Inn!

Greenwich Village is home to lots of walkups and brick townhouses on its tree-lined streets. The Village will definitely keep you busy and active, but if you do want to venture to nearby neighborhoods, transportation is easily accessible. Greenwich Village's old New York charm will captivate you and you'll fall in love with its vibrant atmosphere.

Greenwich Village — 8.9/10 Rating (based on 33 neighborhood reviews)
I love this part of town. It’s bustling & vibrant with heaps of restaurants, bars, cheap eats & Washington Square park which is so beautiful and so much going on - artists, musicians etc. Close to the classy & beautiful West Village on one side and the fun, young East Village on the other. Easy to get everywhere on the subway & not too far from either the Hudson River or the East River.

I mean, it's the village. Bars, food, easy transportation, always something to do or see. And best of all: 2 blocks from school.
Can be loud and sketchy at night. I'm a big guy so doesn't bother me but might bother more vulnerable people. I don't really think safety is an issue though.

It's kind of noisy with the bar scene but if you get an apartment that faces away from the street it is really quiet. Also you are so close to the school, you have so many options for food, and Trader Joe's is a ten minute walk away.

It's a fun neighborhood with lots to do. Everything is a few steps away. The metro is also super close by. I really like the neighborhood. The only thing is it will get loud at night.

NYU Central. Very close to Washington Square Park. Walkable to West Village, East Village, SoHo, Nolita and more. It's fun, lively, and still has a dry cleaner across the street. Some of the nearby bars are loud and boisterous.

If you're choosing between Columbia and NYU purely based on neighborhood, pick NYU. Plenty of good food (if pricey), good nightlife, area feels safe day and night. Good mix of students and non-students. Washington Square Park serves as a sort of unofficial campus and heart of the neighborhood. Only downside is lots of homeless. They tend not to be aggressive however.

Nice neighborhood. Good restaurants and bars around. They can be pretty pricey. Make sure to check the ratings to make sure you get what you pay for! We live very close to a grocery store. There are a lot of metro stations nearby and it is easy to walk to school.

I like the atmosphere of Greenwich Village (and Washington Square Park), the proximity to school, and that it doesn't have skyscrapers like other parts of town. There are always new restaurants to try and new things to do.

Atrium at 160 Bleecker St.
Close to campus, very safe area, but also very busy! Union Square can be hectic at times, with lots of people ALWAYS around. Make sure your apartment has thick windows, or doesn't face the street...

Near to multiple major grocery stores (Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, other various), as well as a thousand restaurants, bars and fast food places. Multiple gym chains in the area, from NYSC and Planet Fitness to Equinox. Close to all amenities, including dry cleaning and shoe repair, shopping.

Best neighborhood in New York, period. (I didn't mean to sound like Sean Spicer, but at least my statement is true) Amazing nightlife, Washington Square Park, close to NYU, historical, forward-thinking, beautiful. The Village is a great neighborhood, move here and never look back.
