Greenwich is surrounded by Broadway to the east, the Hudson River to the west, Houston Street to the south, and 14th Street to the north. Here, you will be surprised by the non-respect for the straight line specific to New York!

And for TV series fans, it is at 66 Perry Street in Greenwich that Carrie Bradshaw lived in Sex and the City, and it is also nearby that you will find the Central Perk from the series Friends!
