The leafy and tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village make it a nice place for an afternoon stroll along the beautiful redbrick townhouses. The ivy creepers on the exterior of the townhouses add to the already charming atmosphere. Greenwich Village is known for many things and one of its reason to fame was being the location of where Sex and The City was filmed. Sarah Jessica Parker lives here and so did her alter ego in this TV show. The location of Magnolia Bakery which rose to fame thanks to Sex and The City is here on Bleecker Street. For those who were not fans of Sex and The City (i.e. T and I), the narrow Bleecker Street is where shopping comes alive. New York's gay community can be found on Christopher Street. New York University territory is centered in the West Village which adds to the vibrancy of Washington Square Park, a place where many people choose to spend their time outdoors on a beautiful sunny day.
