What I Like Most About It:
Greenwich Village is infused with charm due to the dominating presence of pre-war architecture throughout the neighborhood. The townhouses in the area some of the most beautiful in the city, in my opinion. I also feel the area has a high level of energy due to the presence of NYU, which is my law school alma mater. Admittedly, the scholastic connection does affect my fondness for this particular neighborhood 🙂 There is a vast array of restaurants, bars and coffee shops to choose from – you are unlikely to ever be bored with your options. Finally, Greenwich Village is quite convenient in terms of subway access and proximity to other popular downtown neighborhoods, namely Union Square, Flatiron, Chelsea, Soho, the West Village and the East Village.
