East Village is separate. West Village is a subsection of Greenwich Village. Here's a map to help.



So here you can see that Greenwich Village and East Village are different neighborhoods. Broadway is the dividing line.

But West Village is not marked on here because it is PART of Greenwich Village (west of Sixth avenue).

Next time when you come and explore the East village you'll see that also it looks and feels different too. It attracts different crowds and has a much grittier, grungier, artsy, and not as wealthy vibe + look. I also think EV has a "cooler" feel to it too, and better nightlife.

I would argue that Little Italy should be much smaller on that map, if existant at all

You're right, I agree. I didn't even notice that. I was just paying attention to the villages. They make it look so much bigger than Chinatown.

Gramercy park is also really big too. I guess this isn't actually the best map. Just pay attention to the villages and ignore the rest, lol

Both are easily my favorite places to walk on a nice Saturday. Sometimes I'll walk from the Hudson to the East River, a lot of beautiful architecture
