Wag! Walkers know Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village is a well known residential and commercial neighborhood on the west side of Lower Manhattan, New York.  This area is famous for its historic bohemian culture and thriving arts and music scene. Recent gentrification in the area has made this one of the most expensive areas to live in the US, and many artists and students have relocated to nearby neighborhoods.  However, Greenwich village still maintains its artsy historic vibe. The centrally located Washington Square Park is a famous hang out for musicians, artists, students, skateboarders, and locals with their dogs. This area has become somewhat of a tourist attraction and is a famous location for people-watching in New York. There are plenty of post-secondary institutions in the area, and the well known liberal arts school, New York University, is located just south of Greenwich Village. There are lots of trendy eateries, jazz and comedy clubs, theaters, and nightclubs that provide a vibrant nightlife in “The Village”. Locals and their canine companions can enjoy lots of activity, sights, and sounds day or night in their own neighborhood with plenty to see and do.

What is the terrain like in Greenwich Village?

Greenwich Village is a bit different than the surrounding Manhattan neighborhoods in terms of layout. Original 18th-century street plans have been preserved in this historic neighborhood, contrasting with the grid pattern prevalent in surrounding areas. As a result, streets can curve, are narrower than elsewhere on the island, and run off at odd angles. This contributes to the character of the neighborhood. Greenwich Street used to be on the Hudson River shoreline, but is now further inland, as landfill to the west has been used along the river. However, this area also follows the older street pattern. Roads in the Village tend to be named, rather than numbered, which further adds to the community's unique nature. Also, in contrast to the surrounding areas, which feature mostly high rise apartments, Greenwich Village has preserved mid-rise apartments and 19th-century row houses and walk-ups, which make it unique in densely populated Manhattan. The Hudson River is located on the westside of Greenwich Village and features parks and greenways that are popular with area residents.  

How many greenways are there in Greenwich Village?

The Hudson park greenway runs along the Hudson River on the westside of Greenwich Village, and is a popular walking destination for area residents and their dogs to enjoy a treed trail with green spaces and a view of the river.

The famous Washington Square Park is located in the heart of Greenwich Village and features trails, benches, and monuments. Many artists and musicians set up in this area to perform, and the area is busy with sightseers, tourists, students from nearby NYU, and other area campuses as well as locals with their pets, all enjoying the culture and ambiance of this unique neighborhood.   There is even an off-leash dog park at Washington Square, the Robyn Kovary Dog Run for small dogs is located on the south side of the park.

There are also several playgrounds and parks in the neighborhood, including James J. Walker Park, which has several walkways and trails. Dogs must be kept on a leash here. If you want to enjoy more off-leash time with your canine buddy, the Leroy Street Dog park and run is located just south of Greenwich Village on the Hudson River Park Greenway, and you can enjoy off-leash activity there. If you live in the northern area of the Village, the West Village D.O.G. Run, is located along the Hudson River, just north of Greenwich Village and also provides off-leash fun for local pets and owners to enjoy.
