Small curving streets, peculiar alleys, and historic townhouses—it's easy to see why the tree-lined streets of the West Village, which are primarily residential, are in such high demand. A visit here reveals charming cafés, restaurants, and carefully disheveled celebrities out and about. Visitors flock here to feel like a local, to daydream about a life in New York. Unlike 5th Avenue or SoHo, the pace is slower, allowing shoppers to enjoy the peaceful streets and small-scale stores. This is the place to come for unusual finds as well as global-brand goods.
The West Village section of Bleecker Street is a particularly good place to indulge all sorts of shopping appetites; high-fashion foragers prowl the stretch between West 10th Street and 8th Avenue. Hudson Street and Greenwich Avenue are also prime boutique-browsing territories.
On Christopher Street, among cafés, lifestyle boutiques, and clothing shops, is one of the city's most acclaimed Off-Broadway theaters, the Lucille Lortel, where major playwrights like David Mamet, Eugene Ionesco, and Edward Albee have their own markers in the sidewalk.
