Neighborhood Description

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. Why? Because the West Village (referred to simply as “WV”) boasts quaint cobblestone streets, small restaurants with a European vibe, and as many Marc Jacobs stores as you can imagine.

Offbeat in design, the West Village is also unconventional in the personality of its 31,000 residents. It's the treasured home of artists, high-earning professionals, and affluent families. The West Village has also been noted for its large, twenty to thirty-nine year old demographic. The area is bustling—filled with shoppers, foodies, and art lovers—but the vibe remains more intimate than other neighborhoods in the city, managing to be low key in spite of its heavy concentration of wealth and celebrities. The neighborhood still manages to feel like Manhattan at its finest.

Apartments are small, but what you give up in square footage, you'll often gain in charm with architectural details lost in today’s new construction - fireplaces (functioning and not), crown molding, and arched hallways. Charm-free new construction buildings (usually on the West Side Highway) offer full-service accommodations that include on-site gyms and doormen.

Once you’ve moved in, you'll spend more time roaming the neighborhood than enjoying your expensive place. But what you spend on extra rent, you'll save on taxis! The bar and restaurant scene in the West Village is expansive and exhaustive, held in high esteem for its romantic fine-dining establishments, like One if By Land, Two if By Sea and Blue Hill, as well as burger joints and gastropubs like The Spotted Pig and Corner Bistro.

Noteworthy tourist attractions include the legendary Meatpacking District, Hudson River Park, and the High Line.

The West Village is located south of Chelsea, west of Greenwich Village, north of SoHo, and east of the Hudson River. Around 1916, the West Village became known as “Little Bohemia” due to its large concentration of artists. The famously “confusing” structure of the neighborhood’s streets is the result of an eighteenth-century grid plan that set those streets at an angle to the other, more grid-like, streets of Manhattan. The elevated park (today known as the High Line) was once a train track used to serve local businesses in the area.

A handful of subway stops serve the West Village, including the Fourteenth-Street Eighth Avenue stop along the A/C/E and L trains, the West Fourth Street–Washington Square stop along the A/C/E, B/D, and F/M trains, Fourteenth-Street Seventh Avenue along the 1/2/3 trains, and Christopher Street–Sheridan Square at Seventh Avenue along the 1/2/3 trains.
