I was amazed by this region. Instead of vast buildings, there are small, attractive structures. Friends Apartment is also located in this region.

Greenwich Village is a very cool area of Manhattan and the West Village is the western part of this neighbourhood.

There are plenty of apartment blocks in the area also lots of small bars and restaurants. There are also plenty of little shops selling all sorted of things.

I was really struck by the architecture. To me it seemed like this was the New York from movies and TV shows of the 70' and 80's and it was nice to wander around.

I mean... movie set out of this world sure.
I plan on giving a taste of each hood.
I have to say smg that might blow your mind - if you are visiting - you might want to come on a week day or evening for a walk, fantasize about its inhabitants but not spend your $--- but the city as changed so much you could get a better cafe, diner eating experience elsewhere - as in a more nyc feel- as far as service quality goes - the idea of finding that cute little place in the back of nowhere you think no one knows is OVA post 2010 thanks IG..but walks and fantasies are a must stop. If you want a cafe I hope to review a good grab and go at least...oslo comes to mind now but will write more!!!

We came to this important and charming neighborhood several times during our stay, mostly for food and drink. But one could also come here for a walking tour or just wandering tree-shaded brownstone streets. Lots of eating nightlife here, a couple of clubs. Famous and historic.

We need to visit The West Village every fall. We crave it. We head to the West Village and simply walk the streets with no plans. If we are hungry, then it is easy to get deliciousness food at a good price without some ungodly wait. We love Bleecker. The people and the neighborhood locals are wonderful. So genuine and caring and friendly. Washington Square Park is special. So is McDougal Street. Bedford, Grove, Barrow, Charles, Perry, too many quaint streets to list. Heartwarming.

There is just something about the West Village that brings me back in every trip to the city. A perfect escape from the madness of midtown, the West Village and its cool tree lined streets are the perfect place for a bit of respite from the crowds.

The West Village has some great movie and TV sights such as the Friends building on Bedford St. couple that with some of the best eateries in the city, I’d definitely recommend a good walk through the area!

The West village is my favorite side of the village. I'm a big fan of the architecture. When you walk down any side street, you will not see two alike structures on the same street. The townhouses are beautiful. These stately homes are all well over 100 years old.

You do not see the same grandeur or charm in the east village.

Greenwich village is already knows for it's focus on culture and bohemian styles. West Village is a subsection that is even more intense than the whole. Artist lofts and galleries, Cafe Society (referring to the first integrated nightclub that still influences the area), Off-Broadway's oldest theater and the world's biggest Halloween parade. The West Village is both old and new simultaneously and a wonderful place to get lost while strolling around and seeing the sights
