I've lived the majority of my life in this neighborhood and overall, it is fantastic. I graduated from City and Country Middle School and am entering the Abraham Joshua Heschel High School. The Village is overwhelmingly liberal and there are many LGBTQ+ people living around because the LGBT Center is in the village. Sometimes walking past that area I feel uncomfortable because there are many homeless people living on that street.
However, everything else is incredible. You can't live the same life uptown or even in midtown. Downtown in the meatpacking district is really the best.

Greenwich Village is an incredible neighborhood in Manhattan that is absolutely perfect for students. As someone attending NYU, Greenwich offers the perfect mix of a pleasant residential neighborhood and the excitement of the city.
Fantastic and culturally interesting neighborhood. Beautiful architecture in a great location! Right by the hudson river!
