Q. Where is Greenwich Village?
A. Many people confuse Greenwich Village, and the West Village, thinking they are one and the same, and so we are often asked, where is Greenwich Village? Distinct from the West Village, Greenwich Village is located between 14th Street to the north and West Houston Street to the south. It's eastern border is Broadway, and on the west it is separated from the West Village by Sixth Avenue (or, the Avenue of the Americas, as it's sometimes called).
Some people may argue the western boundary (usually it's a Greenwich Village building claiming to be in the West Village), but Sixth Avenue is generally recognized as the "official" border. Neighborhoods bordering Greenwich Village include the West Village, SoHo, NoHo, the East Village, and Union Square/Flatiron District.

Q. How do I get to Greenwich Village?
A. Now that we've clarified the difference between Greenwich Village and the West Village, the next question we're asked, after "where is Greenwich Village" is, "how do I get there?" Several subway lines run along the borders of the neighborhood (though none run directly through it). To the north, the L Train runs along 14 Street, and will take you to that Hipster Haven known as Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
To the west, the A, B, C, D, E, F and M trains all stop on Sixth Avenue, while you can catch the N/R trains on the east on Broadway. Walking a block east from Broadway, you can also pick up the 6 train, which is the main north/south train on the east side of Manhattan. You can also do a short walk to the West Village, and pick up the 1 Train there. This central location is one of the few where access to both east and west side trains is a short walk away.
Of course, there are the usual MTA buses crawling the streets, including crosstown routes on 14th Street, and on Houston Street. Major uptown routes are on Broadway and Sixth Avenue.
For those drivers out there... don't even think about trying to park in Greenwich Village. Seriously.
