To the West of Lower Manhattan, in New York City, lies a quaint part of town is regarded as an artists’ haven, a Bohemian center, where the the modern LGBT movement began, and the East Coast birthplace of the ’60’s subculture. This is Greenwich Village.
Historically, it is regarded as a vital milestone of American bohemian culture in the early and mid-20th century, known for the colorful artists who lived there and for the alternative culture they professed. The Village was the center of modern movements and ideas, and it thrived in the coming years.
Today, Greenwich Village keeps its original charm and intimate feel, with brownstones, local boutiques and sidewalks with cafes. This is also the best place to go for bohemian fares. You’ll also find the best comedy clubs here, on Bleecker Street and NYU. The area is home to Washington Square Park, where one can easily linger for hours. Public transportation in Greenwich Village is a cinch, or just walk to SoHo and Chelsea—NYC’s trendiest neighborhoods.
Greenwich village is 30 minutes to JFK International Airport.
