A neighborhood of lower Manhattan that today houses mostly upper-middle-class residents. Historically, especially in the 1960s and 70s, it was a haven for artists and bohemians and the birthplace of the East Coast beatnik movement. It was an remains today a center for American gay culture, though now the neighborhood of Chelsea is home to more gays. It is also home to New York University. The name is often shortened to "the Village."
My grandfather was an artist in Greenwich Village in the 1960s.
(n.) a group of neighborhoods in the Los Angeles area that are extravagantly wealthy and in relatively close proximity to Downtown LA. The Platinum Triangle consists of the Los Angeles districts of Bel Air and Holmby Hills and the independent city of Beverly Hills.
Other neighborhoods of Los Angeles and nearby towns (i.e. Pacific Palisades, Malibu, San Marino) are as wealthy as those in the Platinum Triangle but are not considered part of this grouping because they are not as close to the immediate Los Angeles area (Downtown LA).
The Platinum Triangle is home to several Hollywood celebrities as well as good restaurants and shopping, exemplified by Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
Politically, the Platinum Triangle is left-of-center and tends to vote for Democratic candidates in local, state, and federal elections.
"-I'm so glad I transferred from UCLA to USC. All my new friends are so fabulous. I'm going to someone's house in Bel Air this weekend.
