Perhaps no other place in the country is known for its art movement than the western part of Greenwich Village, aptly dubbed the “West Village.” Some say The Village was the birthplace of American Modern art and they may be right. Greenwich Village was a haven to artists and the bohemian lifestyle since the late 19th century and while the residents may be more upper-middle to upper class now, the vibe is still very eclectic and a top destination for all visitors to New York. The Village has dozens of small, but well established playhouses, including the oldest continuously running house, The Cherry Lane Theatre, which opened in 1924. There are also many galleries including the Grey Art Gallery, which houses a collection of contemporary fine art including one of the finest collections of American paintings from the 1940’s to present. Curated by Jaquelynn Baas and organized by the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, it is lesser known, but a wonderful find.

Greenwich Village is home to many great restaurants including Mario Battali’s Lupa and Babbo, as well as New York City staples like il Millinio, believed to be the best Italian Restaurant in the country, and The Gotham Bar and Grill, a known celebrity hangout. No matter what cuisine you desire The Village will certainly satisfy your palate.

The Village abounds with things to do during your down time. Read a book in Washington Square Park, visit the homes of famous American poets like Edwin Arlington Robinson, Marianne Moore, Edna St. Vincent Millay and e. e. cummings, among others, or take a stroll down West 10th Street, considered the most beautiful block in the city. No matter how you like to relax Greenwich Village has something for everyone.
