The West Village is located in one of the most serene areas in all of Manhattan. Tree-lined streets show off numerous historic brownstones, and the tranquil enclave that results makes West Village feel separate from New York City. The cobblestone streets completely defy the grid system, establishing a quiet, yet unique atmosphere.
The apartments in this neighborhood are more generously sized, along narrow and charming streets. Though secluded, the West Village has excellent access to public transportation. Primarily residential, the neighborhood in the daytime is laid-back, thanks to the lack of office space in the area. At night, the it’s much livelier as its residents pour out into the eclectic night-life scene.
