The Villages embody the best of New York City, with charming tree-lined streets, eclectic shops, and diverse restaurants. The neighborhood has over 1,000 buildings from the pre-Civil War era, including original row houses and gorgeous architecture.
DiningThis neighborhood is notorious for great eats in every category. If you live for the best, you’ll be in the right place. Greenwich Village’s storied Italian-American history lives on today in the neighborhood’s abundance of Italian eateries.
