259 BLEECKER ST in West Village

West Village

Quiet Good transportation Great food Fun nightlife Cool factor LGBT-popular Young crowd

Perhaps more than any other NYC neighborhood, West Villagers are obsessed with their neighborhood.

For instance, many forgo basic privacy by making two-bedroom apartments accommodate four roommates and embrace sleeping in a room with enough space for a bed and nothing more. They also give up...cash to live in one of the city's most expensive neighborhoods.
