Living in West Village
The West Village sprawls westward from Greenwich Village, bordered by Chelsea to its north. This historic district features elegant pre-war brownstones, cobblestones and tree-lined alleyways. Its ramshackle streets wind their way in a somewhat quirky layout that’s a pleasure to explore; you may even find yourself at the corner of Waverly Place and Waverly Place. With cozy bookstores, outdoor cafés and eccentric antique shops lining the twisting alleyways, you’re forgiven for thinking you’ve wandered into a forgotten corner of Paris. The neighborhood also includes the chic Meatpacking District enclave along the river, with its famed nightlife and luxury hotels. Residents enjoy close proximity to nearly all major subway lines in neighboring Greenwich Village and Union Square.
