Greenwich Village

Washington Square Park is a people-watcher’s paradise. Musicians, sunbathers, skateboarders, dog owners, pickup chess warriors and NYU students all hang out around the historic fountain in the shadow of the arch, often used as a location in films and televisions shows. The surrounding neighborhood echoes with beat-poet and music history—this is the neighborhood where Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez began their careers. In keeping with the young population, a night out here might mean a set at a comedy club, seeing a performance at a bar or theater, and having a quick bite at one of the many local restaurants.
