Greenwich Village / NoHo, New York.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

Famous for its bohemian past when it was the epicenter of the 50s Beat Movement and early stomping grounds for Hendrix, Dylan, and the Velvet Underground, Greenwich Village is steeped in an artistic history and energy that has continued into the present day.

Home to New York University, the neighborhood is usually full of college students and literary types who study or laze the day away by Memorial Arch in Washington Square Park or huddle into the countless coffee shops and diners to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi and cheap eats.

Plenty of shopping options in Greenwich Village keep hipsters and fashionistas alike happy, from vintage record stores to the unique boutiques on Bleecker and MacDougal.

By night, music lovers and creative young professionals come out in droves to catch jazz greats at the Blue Note and Village Vanguard, have a pint at the historic McSorley’s Ole Ale House, or end the night at Webster Hall, a vibrant club dating to 1886.

While the presence of the university ensures that the liberal bohemian set still thrives in Greenwich Village, steeper rents and more gentrification mean that struggling artists are more likely to live in Brooklyn than in this historic haven of art and culture.
