"Picturesque NYU neighborhood"

There isn’t really much going on down on Laguardia (other than the standard businesses that cater to college students) – it’s a pretty quiet street, and an ideal place to live if you want to be close to a younger crowd without actually being in the middle of the crowd. It’s close to the park, and it’s generally a picturesque street.

"A quiet and functional street"

Among the famous streets of the Greenwich Village, La Guardia Place is the less crowded. This is what I call a ‘functional’ street. Almost everything one needs is there: A post office, a print shop, a laundy, etc. There are also some interesting places. The Center of Architecture constantly shows great exhibitions, and if you get hungry, right after the exhibition, you can walk to the Japanese restaurant right next door.

"NYU's Main Street"

This quaint little square between Bleecker Street and Washington Square Park is home to almost all of the amenities that a typical NYU student will need during their collegiate stay. On the Washington Square Park side, the street is hugged by NYU’s Bobst library, a towering, and somewhat haunting red brick building, and the Kimmel arts and student center. On this block however, you will also find the Associated Supermarkets, which reliably stocks various international products, especially from Eastern Europe and the Middle East. This is one of the most reliable places in the city to purchase Passover friendly foods. Furthermore, LaGuardia place has a host of bars and cute restaurants that are always friendly to sit in during a sunny summer day.

"right next to NYU"

So you know it's full of college students. It depends on your perspective whether that's a good or bad thing. When I went, I liked it. It does have a lot of decent places to eat nearby (Cuba is one block over on Thompson), but I was there for the NYU Business and Law bookstore. Meh, it has books. I thought it was the site of the Poe house NYU demolished, but it wasn't. That's on w 3rd.

Oh, and skip the Duane Reade just up Becker. It's a mess and service is terrible..

"Fun and Delicious Place to Visit"

The strip of LaGuardia Place between Bleecker and Houston happens to contain my favorite bakery in all of NYC--Bruno's. It's like finding yourself in a lovely European cafe all of a sudden. Try the favori (chocolate hazelnut mousse with chocolate ganache on top). Sigh! It's the perfect after dinner location since it stays open pretty late for a bakery. So you can enjoy your latte while waiting for your comedy show to start. The whole area is pretty hopping so avoid living there if that isn't your scene.
