Greenwich Village today
Today, the neighborhood is true to its’ Bohemian roots and is comprised of residential and commercial properties that are linked together in true neighborhood fashion. The Village is where small, owner-operated shops outnumber national chain stores and 19th Century brownstones and tenements stand next to pre- and post-war apartment buildings, lending a small village atmosphere to the otherwise urban environment.
