Greenwich Village appeared in the 1800s as a prosperous residential district. As time passed, ‘the Village’, as locals know it, became home to many artists, actors, writers and musicians with famous tenants such as E.E. Cummings, Thomas Paine, Julianne Moore and Edgar Allan Poe. While the area maintains its bohemian heritage, it is now just as likely to house a stockbroker as it is to house a sculptor. As the Village’s charm permeated, its appeal widely expanded its variety of tenants.
The primary employer in the district is the much-celebrated New York University, the largest private university in the US. Surrounding the newly renovated Washington Square, the main campus of NYU is composed of 14 colleges and employs over 16,000 employees. With its tradition for the arts and notable publishing tenants, the Village attracts creative and professional writers alike. One recognized office space in Greenwich Village is the Forbes Building. It was built for the Macmillan publishing house in 1923, and has been home to Forbes Magazine since 1965.
Entertainment And Dining Out
As a creative district, the Village vaunts a spectrum of dining choices from charming pizzerias such as Arturo’s, Bleecker Street Pizza and Keste Pizza & Vino to picturesque upscale restaurants like Blue Hill, Minetta Tavern and Babbo Ristorante. The Village is also home to many Off Broadway performances and theaters. The world-renowned Blue Man Group, for example, has taken up a residency within the area.
The area is accessible through Washington Square station and is served by the A, B, C, D, E, F and M trains. Taxis are also available in the Village; the minimum metered fare is $2.50, which increases by 50 cents every fifth of a mile. Greenwich Village is located 10 miles southwest of LaGuardia International Airport, which provides regional and international flights to Canada and the Caribbean isles. The area is 19 miles northwest of John F. Kennedy International Airport, which provides regional and international flights to Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Caribbean isles.
