The STREETWISE® Greenwich Village Map doesn’t just cover Greenwich Village, but everything south of 14th street and north of Chambers street, from the east River to the Hudson. Within these boundaries are some of the most colorful neighborhoods in Manhattan. While times have changed and the area may not be as bohemian as it once was, the influx of professionals has certainly not eradicated the independent spirit of each neighborhood. The area is also such a prime gastronomic destination that this is one of the few STREETWISE® Maps to feature restaurants not only highlighted on the map, but also included in the index.
While a few ultra modern condo buildings have shot up recently, Greenwich Village is still a collection of brownstones and townhouses on small tree lined streets. There’s an academic atmosphere fueled by students of New York University, the New School, Parsons School of Design and Cardozo Law School. A longtime center for gays and lesbians, the Village isn’t as shocking as it used to be. The annual Halloween parade is still a great sight to see, but the neighborhood is more of a restaurant destination than the flame throwing extravaganza that it once was.
The East Village has gentrified as well. St Marks Place was Punk Rock Central in the 70’s and 80’s, and while there will always be a few multicolored Mohawks hanging around Trash& Vaudeville (the original American punk rock hangout), the cleaned up Tompkins Square park has attracted uptowners looking for a deal. There are plenty of great restaurants in the area catering to all tastes.
In between the east Village and the West Village lies NoHo (NOrth of HOuston) and NoLita (NOrth of Little ITAly). Renovated lofts and tenements share the neighborhood with unrenovated buildings, making it a bit scruffier that SoHo or Tribeca. The Lower East Side originally was a neighborhood of immigrants jam-packed into tenements, pushcarts and small ethnic shops. It’s still a neighborhood of shops where you’ll find bargains a plenty and it’s the home of some of the more innovative restaurants in the city.
Chinatown’s frenetic atmosphere is punctuated by stores selling various decipherable and undecipherable goods. Shop for treasures to take home or find a good Dim Sum restaurant and let the dumpling parade begin.
SoHo is an upscale shopping bonanza with labels such as Chanel, Prada and even Bloomingdale’s. Tribeca is a close-knit neighborhood of lofts, taverns, galleries and restaurants. The Tribeca FilmFestival, held each spring, brings visitors from all over New York and the world to see the diverse selection of offerings, some shown in an open air drive-in set up along the Hudson.
Each of these neighborhoods is delineated by color and fully indexed with listing of streets, parks, bookstores, cinemas, clubs, colleges, hotels, museums, points of interest, post offices, restaurants, shopping and theaters. Subway stops are also clearly marked.
