The West Village (the extension of Greenwich Village west of Seventh Avenue) certainly follows its own jazzy rhythms. Spend a day browsing the West Village’s bookstores, cozy cafes, and antique shops with all kinds of bric-a-brac for sale reminiscent of Paris. The apartments tend to have historic charm too, many with fireplaces and hidden gardens. Often the older buildings have been renovated, so behind many a landmark façade is a Bulthaup kitchen with a six-burner stove!
