Beautiful 19th Century brownstones fill the streets of Greenwich/West Village. Most apartments in the Village are 3 or 4 story walkups that are always manageable, with hardwood floors and an incredible attention to detail. Many basements or sub-level apartments are visible from the street. To capture the quintessential European feel, many people look for apartments on some of the West Village’s most famed streets—St. Luke’s Place, Gay Street, West 11th Street, or Charles Street. While these are some of the more noted blocks, almost any side street in the Village comes packed with charm, beautiful buildings, and friendly neighbors. Prices can soar for the gorgeous, often historic apartments here. The streets bend and weave and no two homes are quite alike in this unique area of Manhattan.
Once a literary haven known for beat poetry, hippies, out-of-the-mainstream art, speakeasies and black-clad poets, the Village today provides something for everyone.
Close to everything---restaurants of every type of food imaginable, transportation, art, film centers, fashion, the educational mecca of NYU---the Village will always be an area in high demand. And at the center of it all is the famed Washington Square Park. Rents and property prices continue to rise, particularly in the NYU area, but most feel the tree-lined streets, beautiful buildings and overall downtown vibe are well worth it.
