Long known as New York's Bohemian capital, Greenwich Village has packed a cultural punch well past its physical size. The neighborhood is a longtime artists' haven, the birthplace of the modern LGBT movement, and the epicenter of the Beat movement, the 60's countercultural movement, as well as the heart of the American Jazz and Folk music scenes.
Beyond its historical significance, it's also a highly sought-after neighborhood in which to live. The Village has incredibly diverse food, music, and shopping scenes with some of the best restaurants in the city. And with its narrow streets, lower-scale architecture, Washington Square Park, as well as charming small parks and playgrounds on tucked away streets, it's one of the best "walking" areas and one of the highest quality of living neighborhoods in New York. After living here, you'll know why it really does take a Village.
