The West Village is the western portion of the Greenwich Village, generally defined as stretching from 14th to Houston Streets, between the Hudson River and Sixth Avenue. Bordering neighborhoods include Chelsea to the north, SoHo to the south, and the center of Greenwich Village to the east.
The West Village is known for its intimate tree-lined streets, charming sidewalk cafes, and bohemian lifestyle. Full of single-family brownstones, artist lofts, and pre-war apartments, the area offers a more casual approach to city living. However, at its northwest corner lies the Meatpacking district, a counterpoint to the serenity generally associated with the area. This busy sub-neighborhood offers a large variety of restaurants nightclubs and hotels.
Featuring intimate restaurants, numerous nightspots, convenient transportation, and the Hudson River Park, the West Village continues to be one of the most desirable destinations in Manhattan.
