The Village, whether you visit the West Village, East Village or Greenwich Village proper (right in the middle) , has a wonderful history of art and creativity, and is now a popular neighborhood for bistros, coffee houses and small-venue performance spaces.

You can’t visit the Village without checking out “The Astor Place Cube“, a steel sculpture by Tony Rosenthal which has become a symbol of the artistic atmosphere of the neighborhood. Other historic landmarks of interest include the birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt and Greenwich Village Society For Historic Preservation.
