One of the joys of coming to the Quad Cinema (in addition to seeing wonderful films) is to hang out in the area. The Quad is located right in the heart of Greenwich Village, perhaps the most charming and interesting neighborhood in the city. Here are some attractions we recommend, all within a comfortable walk from the Quad:
Where Fifth Avenue ends. A vibrant park with benches, street-life, musicians, and students from New York University. Come on a Sunday when it's most lively and festive. Buy an ice-cream cone, sit on a bench, and enjoy!
New York University
Surrounds Washington Square. See the imposing Bobst Library and visit the fabulous bookstore. NYU is now considered one of the elite universities in the world.
Judson Memorial Church
Washington Square South. Designed by renowned architect Stanford White, of McKim, Mead and White, this beautiful Romanesque church was completed in 1892. See the stained glass windows by John la Farge. The Judson is most famous for its vocal participation in social events.
Off Fifth near Washington Square North. A hidden, private street that will transport you to Europe. Formerly stables which were converted to lovely, quaint, carriage houses.
Jefferson Market Courthouse
425 Avenue of the Americas. Built in 1833 as a market, it was later converted to a courthouse, and in the 1950s it was emptied and close to being demolished. It was saved by preservationists and converted to a library. Many consider it to be the most beautiful building in the Village.
11th Street and 12th Street
Between Fifth Avenue and Avenue of the Americas. Walk these streets. You'll admire the beauty of the townhouses and apartments that best convey the look of Greenwich Village.
