Greenwich Village Real Estate

The West Village and Greenwich Village stretch from 14th to Houston Street between the Hudson River and Broadway, with Sixth Avenue demarcating the two neighborhoods. Known as the birthplace of the Beat movement and the folk music scene of the 1960s, Greenwich Village was once the City's counter-culture capital—the list of artists and intellectuals who have made it their home and cultural center is impressive. Today's Village is home to celebrities, fashion luminaries and Wall Streeters who want to be near work as well as families and young singles. New York University covers a significant portion of the neighborhood as well. The neighborhood still possesses a strong sense of community identity.

The heart of Greenwich Village is Washington Square Park with its impressive Arch. Several high-rises and loft buildings have arrived—but classically beautiful brick townhouse apartments on quiet, tree-lined streets still define the residential areas of the Village, and the Lower Fifth Avenue area between 13th and 9th Streets is one of the City’s most elegant stretches. Apartment prices remain high despite economic fluctuations; some say the Village is downtown's most desirable residential area. Subways are plentiful—A, B, C, D, E, F,V at West 4th Street or N, R at 8th Street—and easy to find.
