    Greenwich Village at a Glance:

    • Away from the street grid that makes up most of Manhattan, Greenwich Village is a great escape from the noisy concrete urban jungle. Take time to walk around its winding, residential streets that were built on a human scale before the rise of steel and cast iron.

    • Explore dark, mysterious courtyards nestled in between brownstones and townhouses to suddenly realize what most of Manhattan looked like back in the day. Sample the funky, independently owned stores, shops and restaurants (especially around Macdougal Street) that typically give the neighborhood its distinctive character, set apart from the chain stores that line the broader avenues further uptown.

    • Also don't miss a walk around New York University and Washington Square, a good starting point for any Village visit offering a vivid circus of skateboard tricks, live impromptu music concerts and street performances.

    • Of course, this perfectly preseved neighborhood didn't happen by accident. Home to artists, musicians and writers for most of the last century, Village residents continue to fight the good fight, today resulting in almost a third of the neighborhood's buildings being named historical treasures.

    Where: Greenwich Village (or the Village, or the West Village) is roughly bounded between 14th Street and West Houston from the Hudson River to Fifth Avenue.

    How to Get There By Subway: Take the A, C, E or B, D F or V trains to the West 4th Street station; the 1 or 9 train to Christopher Street/Sheridan Square or to Houston Street stations; the 6 train to Astor Place; or the R or W train to 8th Street and Broadway.

    How to Get There by Bus: M1 M2 M3 M5 M6 M8
