Overview

Go “off the grid” in West Village, and get lost in history, while enjoying a drink or two. Distinguished by its narrow streets paved with setts (not to be confused with cobblestones) and its colorful townhouses, West Village and Greenwich Village were the beginnings of the bohemian culture and drew in artists from all over the world. The nightclubs and coffee shops saw the start of amazing talent such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Barbra Streisand. Hit shows Friends and Sex in the City filmed all over the village.

Move up to Gansevoort Market Historic District, better known as the Meatpacking district and you get a little more of Manhattan’s grid system and the industrial run off of Central Manhattan. Gansevoort Market, started in 1879 was a huge hub for buying and selling of meat, poultry and dairy. Home to 250 slaughter and packing plants, making it the Meat Packing District. Today these warehouses exteriors are the same but the insides are some of the greatest nightclubs and galleries south of 42nd Street.
