Basic Greenwich Village Benefit
There are a few basic Greenwich Village benefit that you can think of right on top of your mind. However, I will mention them again here to make it clear. Some straight out benefit that you obtain include, additional resources, double troops training, and gain additional respect. Below are these basic benefits list in detail.
When you activate and build a second neighborhood, you pretty much have all the spaces available to create additional resource buildings. The second Greenwich Neighborhood in the Godfather: Five Families will produce these resources and store in its town until you transfer it to your first Neighborhood.
Train More Troops
With the Greenwich village, the troop training counter is separated from the main neighborhood. It means that you can enable troops training in the Greenwich Village as a separate source of battle units. This can effectively double the amount of troops that you can make. However note that you will have to build separate hideout as well to boost your training speed in the Greenwich village.
Because you gain respect when you research and upgrade your neighborhood’s buildings. You have the potential to earn additional permanent respect from upgrading the level of those. In addition, by having a Greenwich Village, you get additional exposures such as more attacks and potential to be attacked, you may earn more respect from the Godfather: Five Families PvP battles as well.
Additional Income from the Collectible Buildings
Some buildings in the neighborhood called Rackets can boost your income once every so often. In greenwich village, the Train station will grant you 75000 Cash per collection.
Production Boost Related
However, although the Greenwich Village seems great on all counts, you do have to research and rebuild your City from Scratch. This includes the various research, the resources buildings, as well as the estate buildings. However, one great thing about it is that you will gain duplicate attack orders as well apart from your main first The Godfather: 5 Families neighborhood.
Special Greenwich Village Notes on Jobs
Although many of the buildings need to be reproduced, however, the jobs or aka The Godfather: 5 Families quests are shared among the neighborhoods. In addition, the job rewards are given to whereevver the neighborhood you are in when you click the “collect” on the job rewards completion screen.
Building Out Your Greenwich Village
After discussing the good and great things about the 5 Family Greenwich Village, I will move on to discuss how you can get the Greenwich Village as well as some thoughts about how to place them.
Obtaining Greenwich Village Deed
There are currently two ways on how you can obtain the Greenwich Village deed. The first method is to hit Gang level 6 or above for a little chance of getting the drop. Or you can purchase the 5 Family Greenwich Village deed via the item shop. I have described the process in detail in my Godfather: five families FAQ page.
Finding a Slum – Greenwich Village Placement
Now after obtaining the Greenwich Village deed, you have to find a slum to place your 5 family Second Neighborhood. There are mainly three schools of thought on how you can decide where to place the 2nd neighborhood. These are simple really if you think about it. 1. Placing it close to your City, 2. Placing it semi close to your City, and 3. Placing it far away from your Neighborhood. Below is a pro and cons on why you would want to place the neighborhoods at different distances to your first Neighborhood.
Below are the keyfactors on the placement guide for your Greenwich Village. You should figure out your best way on placing the Greenwich Village on the slum based on these factors. Based on your 5 family game play strategy, you should be able to figure out where to place the Greenwich Village based on what is the most important to you.
In addition, after these basic factors, read on to the advanced strategies portion to figure out whether or not you want to apply these strategies to become an even stronger player in the Godfather: Five Families.
Resource Transition Time
The transferring of resources take time just like when you send out march to attack other tiles. By placing your second neighborhood the 5 family Greenwich Village, you can lower the transition time of those resources. Which means that you have better flexibility about when and how you are going to receive those shipment of additional resource boosters.
Troops Reinforce Time
Same idea applies to the transferring of troops than the resources. The march of troops takes time to arrive. If you are constantly being attacked, you want to be able to better transfer and move around your available troops. By placing the 2nd neighborhood closer, you will have faster transferring speed.
Sphere of Influence
Your neighborhoods will exert a sphere of influence around its area because of Cityscapes. By having them far away from each other, you will have better opportunities to attack more of other players. If you place your second Greenwich Neighborhood far away from your first, you will have great sphere of influence to attack other players initially far away from your 1st 5 family neighborhood.
Because you will have to conquer the new Cityscapes for your Greenwich Village, by placing the 2nd neighborhood too close to your first neighborhood will cause a drought of higher level Cityscapes. This means that you will have to venture out farther in order to obtain the high level Cityscapes for both of your neighborhoods. This can lead to a controlling weakness which you might lose out on potential resources gains due to the Cityscape ownership being taken over.
Greenwich Village Building Strategy
In this section, the building strategy of the new neighborhood will be discussed. You second neighborhood should be built to cover any weaknesses that you may have from your first neighborhood, and thus make your overall 5 families strategy even stronger. Below are some of the main builds possible for your game play selection:
A basic build will require to have at least 1 of each buildings in your new neighborhood, so that you can successfully upgrade and research the technology.
Offense Only Build: This build will ask you to build out only hideouts in your 5 families second village. This is best used when you have placed the neighborhood close to your first one. This will help you to build out troops as fast as possible. You will have to do advanced resource management as well as troops marching to successfully defend both of your neighborhoods. However, this extreme build will generate your troops at the fastest speed possible.
Single Resource Heavy
Depending on your favorite unit to use, you can fully build out your second neighborhood with the resource that you need the most. You can adjust the numbers of Cement Factory, steel mill, or restaurant based on your personal resource usage. You should place your second neighborhood semi close to your main so that they can move the resources to your main neighborhood at a decent rate.
Resource Balanced Build
This one is similar to the single resource heavy strategy, however this one focused on the more balance tone where you do not need any resource specifically.
All Balanced Build
This build can be applied when you choose to place your second neighborhood of 5 families far away from your first. If you want your second neighborhood to stand up on its own, you will have to build it out similar to your first where it has a bit of everything. So that the second neighborhood can both generate enough resources while training enough troops to defend its own Estate.

Some of the advanced 5 family strategy involved include training troops with negative cash flow.
