259 W 12TH 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.

Great boutique shopping along the fashionable Bleecker Street, excellent restaurants, and steps away from the Highline, Chelsea Market, the Apple Store, and the exciting Meatpacking District.
