West Village

Former boho mecca is all grown up

Standing at the western end of Greenwich Village, the West Village is perhaps New York's ideal neighborhood. Old brownstones, shady sidewalks, cute cafes and delicious restaurants are the main draw, not to mention its central location and proximity to other hip neighborhoods. Decidedly more upscale than its eastern counterpart, the West Village attracts a thirty-something crowd able to afford its high-end restaurants and $20 covers to legendary jazz clubs, but there is also a bit of NYU spillover as you head east. Though it's easy to break the bank in the West Village, meandering through the atmospheric streets is a cheap, satisfying alternative.
