As one of the most cultured and colorful areas of New York, the Heart & Soul of Greenwich Village continues to be filled with artistic life and literary history. Being one of the earliest areas Europeans settled in Manhattan, immigrants eventually called it “A Village.” As an artists haven and bohemian capital, icons like Bob Dylan and Jimmy Hendrix began their careers here. This is a neighborhood where John F. Kennedy spoke to the community and is considered to be the birthplace of 60’s counter-culture. The village was also home to profound happenings such as the foundation of the LGBT movement and the antiwar movement of the time. The past is ever-present among the unchanged café’s and restaurant facades and interiors as well as commemorative plaques.
