Greenwich Village

Canal St. to Gansevoort St.

Greenwich Village was Hudson River Park’s first completed section, and for nearly two decades this popular stretch has delighted Park visitors. Featuring uninterrupted esplanade, spectacular views of Lower Manhattan and the New York Harbor, and lawns perfect for a shaded picnic or an afternoon of sunbathing, this portion of the Park is the perfect place to play, explore and relax.
