About West Village Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

The iconic West Village has been the center of bohemian style and culture since the 1900s. It’s seen the gamut of artists and writers from Allen Ginsberg to Diane Arbus to Andy Warhol, and its nooks and crannies have held bookstores and cafes that inspired some of the city’s great thinkers. The neighborhood is picturesque, leafy and intimate, with no office buildings and cobble-stoned streets. It’s known for its stunning brownstones, European-style sidewalk eateries, and pricy lodgings, but the price tag may be worth it if you value being in the heart of a posh, world-class art scene, with cultural offerings and eclectic vibes galore.
