Attraction of the Week – Greenwich Village Walking Tour
New York is known as the city that never sleeps and Greenwich Village is evidence of that claim. There’s always something happening in Greenwich Village or “the Green District”. Home to a diverse palette of dining establishments, NYU students and the ever-lively Washington Square Park, it’s hard to get bored in this area.
Like many other neighborhoods in New York, Greenwich Village has a rich artistic history. Writers like Edgar Allan Poe and artists like Jackson Pollock spent time cultivating the local creative scene. Modern day talents like Leonardo DiCaprio and Julia Roberts have also lived in the neighborhood.
Washington Square Park is a beautiful 9 acre public park that unites some of the most creative individuals in the city. Street performers take residence in the park daily to dance, sing, play the piano and even juggle. Local festivities like the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit and the Washington Square Film festival are great activities for the warmer months and attract huge crowds.
