The elegant 19th-century row houses, mid-rises and walk-ups that define the architecture in Greenwich Village have earned the neighborhood a designation as a New York City Historic District. But NYC dwellers know that Greenwich Village's historic buildings are just part of what makes this iconic Manhattan neighborhood, which runs from Houston Street to 14th Street and from Bowery to Seventh Avenue, one of the most vital and vibrant places to live in Manhattan.
The cultural roots of many New York movements -- and the formative years of such disparate New York artists as Eugene O'Neill, Lenny Bruce, Bob Dylan, Isadora Duncan and Dylan Thomas -- are in Greenwich Village. While the Village has naturally lost some of its beatnik edge during its half-century of gentrification, the neighborhood is still home to numerous jazz clubs, live music venues, art house movie theaters, record stores, funky little joints of all kinds, coffee shops and one-of-a-kind restaurants ranging from Michelin-starred Mario Batali restaurants to brick-oven pizzerias to beloved hole-in-the-wall falafel spots. All those cultural destinations (and all that New York history) have ensured that Greenwich Village has remained an enduring desirable residential neighborhood, while a host of new construction rental buildings have helped make the Village a great place to live.
The classic, old-fashioned elegance of a Greenwich Village rental apartment is easy to find in the apartments for rent at 1 Bank Street or the lovely pre-war rental apartments on offer at 1 Christopher Street. The dazzling luxury rentals at 1 Union Square South, on the other hand, offer a very different experience thanks to the building's suite of very contemporary amenities and rental residences. It's a testament to Greenwich Village's enduring cool and eclecticism that these Greenwich Village rental listings -- which initially seem to have little in common beyond being apartments for rent in Greenwich Village -- both fit within the neighborhood. Now, as ever, Greenwich Village contains multitudes, and does so in style.
