Just okay...Nothing great to mention about it... After a week in NY, tried something from back home but was dejected..The taste is just ok and nothing special to mention about it. Avoid if possible...there are more options here...

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
