First established as "Grin'wich" in the early 1700s, the Village has been the birthplace of many artistic milestones, such as the Beatnik movement, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. With the increase of rental prices in the neighborhood, the Village's population makeup has been changed from starving artists to movie stars and NYU students. Popular activities to check out in the area include coffee sipping, boutique shopping pizza eating, music club hopping and indie film watching.
