Greenwich Village Reviews

12 reviews
All Categories
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.

Fantastic and culturally interesting neighborhood. Beautiful architecture in a great location! Right by the hudson river!
I was born into a family that has its roots buried deep into Greenwich Village. My grandfather, Mario Saulig, emigrated to Greenwich Village in 1955 from Italy and my family has lived here ever since. I went to public school in the Village and had a great time. The school was welcoming and friendly. I made friends with many of my neighbors at a young and continue to talk to them even as an 18 year old. I never feel that safety is an issue while in my neighborhood. I have come home well into the morning hours and had no more concern for my safety than if I were coming home at noon. My high school is located in Brooklyn, New York and every time I get off of the subway and see the brown historic district street signs I breath a sign of relief that I am home.
