Greenwich Village New York

New York, the Big Apple, is known for its fast and continuous innovation in all aspects, however in the Greenwich Village the “old” and the “new” melt together making the so called ‘Village” one of the most fascinating quarters of the world. Yes it is a special place, even the way the streets are set they are not in a symmetric order as the rest of Manhattan. In fact, the Village did not go under the reorganization of the roads of Manhattan. As soon as you arrive at the Village you have the feeling that you can whoever you want. Here artists, students, dreamers, tourists all find what they look for this is the Village!
Even the famous writer Edgar Allan Poe stayed here at the Village form 1844 to 45 in a small house made of red bricks, recently knocked down to build part of the famous NYU (New York University)
This quarter since the 30s was a meeting spot for artists, actors, intellectuals, politicians. Today is a very fashionable and cool place, where buying a house is something reserved to the wealthy. The Greenwich Village is still today a very fascinating place that attracts New Yorkers and tourists from all over the world.
