8 Things You’re Missing in Greenwich Village
Remember that whole Beat movement, bohemian life? Do the names Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, or even Maya Angelou ring a bell? This is the Village. Covering the area roughly surrounding Washington Square and NYU, Greenwich Village has been the arts epicenter of not only NYC but the United States. From its heavy influence on ‘60s culture to its current status as celebrity and student hotbed, the Village remains an eclectic artistic hub in NYC. Outside of touring galleries, visiting venues frequented by the Beat Generation, what else can you do? Literally, the neighborhood’s loaded with activities to keep you busy for days, or even weeks.
