Neighborhood Profile

The Central Village (also sometimes called Greenwich Village, out of tradition, although this term has become somewhat ambiguous as it may refer to either the Central Village, its "West" and "East" counterparts, or a combination thereof) is a neighborhood with a split personality – the northern part being pretty quiet and the southern rather boisterous. Nevertheless, since both parts are dominated by NYU, there is something academic (for lack of a better term) about both. Convenience-wise, the Central Village is perhaps the most centrally-located neighborhood in New York. If you choose to live here, you'll be able to walk, in under 20 minutes, to hundreds of restaurants and bars, scores of movie and off-Broadway theaters, countless shops and boutiques, not to mention the Hudson River esplanade, Washington Square Park, Union Square Park, and other landmark locations.

Apartments & Real Estate

Excluding both student dorms (only of interest to students) and Fifth Avenue apartments (mostly of interest to those already living there), one's options for renting in the Central Village are essentially twofold: going low-rise (plenty of brownstones in the northern part of the neighborhood, between 9th and 14th streets and simpler, "tenement-type" buildings in the southern part) or going high-rise. The latter option includes two massive high-rise buildings: Hilary Gardens and One Union Square South, both located east of Fifth Avenue.

The Central Village demographics are defined by two large population segments - NYU students, typically living in dorms (and, to a lesser extent, apartment buildings) just south of Washington Square Park, and the wealthy living around Fifth Avenue north of the park. Moving eastward, those lucky enough to live on/around Broadway are typically loft-dwellers.
