The places currently listed under "See" and "Do" that are east of Broadway belong under "East Village." I am moving them there.

"It is important to note that the neighborhood to the West of Greenwich Village is not considered part of the Village itself, and is thus often called the West Village to differentiate itself from its eastern neighbor."
Huh? It's the "East Village" that is not part of Greenwich Village. "West Village" is synonymous with "Greenwich Village," as far as this native and essentially life-long Manhattanite is concerned. Unless someone can back up the quoted assertion, I will come back in a few days and delete it, perhaps replacing it with a remark that Greenwich Village is called the "West Village" to distinguish it from the "East Village."

OK, I looked at some articles in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenwich_Village and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Village%2C_Manhattan) and discovered that at least some people consider "West Village" to refer only to that section of the Village that's west of 6th Av., but I deleted the claim that the "West Village" is not part of the Village. Historically and in the minds of this New Yorker and every other New Yorker I know, the West Village is the Village.
