Greenwich Village is not generally thought of as a prime neighborhood to rent an office for your company. But it does have 2 Class A office properties, 44 Class B, and 79 Class C, and for the right companies the area can’t be beat.

Greenwich Village-A Unique Neighborhood

Greenwich Village emerged in the early 19th century as an affluent residential community–a well-to-do suburb, really, of New York City. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries “the Village,” as the neighborhood is known, became home to many European immigrants, especially Italians, as well as to home-grown bohemians, artists, rebels, and their hangers-on. It was a place of little theaters, little magazines, bookstores, and cafés, of jazz and folk music. Greenwich Village was synonymous with avant-garde art and progressive politics.

Once upon a time, long before Starbucks, if you wanted espresso or cappuccino, you had to go to Greenwich Village.

Office Rentals Near America’s Largest Private University

The biggest employer by far in Greenwich Village is world-class New York University, the largest private university in America. The main campus of NYU is clustered around the recently refurbished Washington Square, where the university was founded in the 1830s. In recent years, NYU has grown dramatically, and the main campus now stretches up to Union Square. The New School, Parsons School of Design, and Cooper Union are other important institutions of higher learning in Greenwich Village.

Washington Square divides the East Village from the West Village. The East Village was home to beatniks in the 1950s and hippies in the 1960s, and has now gone upmarket. On the Bowery, Whole Foods Market and boutique hotels have replaced flophouses and dive bars. The West Village, toward the Hudson River, is something out of a storybook, with short, twisting streets and quaint row houses from the early 19th century.

One famous Greenwich Village office building is the Forbes Building on Fifth Avenue at 12th Street. Built for the Macmillan publishing house in 1923, the building has been home to Forbes magazine since 1965. Book and magazine publishers are among the types of firms attracted to the Village.

Most of the commercial office and loft buildings in the area are clustered around Sixth Avenue and Broadway as well as around University Place and Union Square. Many architecture firms, including Beyer Blinder Belle and the Rockwell Group, call the Village home, and are inspired by the beautiful historic architecture and wonderful streetscapes of a highly individual neighborhood.

As you would expect, amenities abound. The Village boasts some of the finest restaurants in America. Hudson Street and Bleecker Street offer one-of-a-kind shopping. And Greenwich Village is still the place to go to for jazz—and a cup of espresso.
