Neighborhood: Greenwich Village
Greenwich Village often referred to in New York as simply "the Village", is a largely residential neighborhood on the west side of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Greenwich Village has been known as an artists' haven, the Bohemian capital, the cradle of the modern LGBT community and the East Coast birthplace of both the Beat and ’60 counterculture movements.
Note that the "East Village" was not historically part of Greenwich Village and is still considered by many New Yorkers to be part of the Lower East Side, but the term "West Village" is synonymous with Greenwich Village, or at least that part of the neighborhood that is west of 6th Avenue or so. In the 19th century, the Greenwich Village district was better known as Washington Square. Washington Square Park remains a neighborhood landmark, but the terms "The Village," "Greenwich Village," and "West Village" are practically interchangeable. (Wikipedia)
