Welcome to West Village

A peaceful and walkable area with tree-lined streets

Charmingly reminiscent of the London streets, West Village is an exclusive luxury community that brings a certain cool to the luxury lifestyle. Brick townhouses with decorative iron railings are a hallmark of the West Village, along with Designer boutiques that dot the community's winding streets. West Village most reliably draws creatives and fashionistas looking for something with a finer edge than in NYC's other artist-friendly hubs. With a historically powerful presence and ultra-modern creative flair, West Village (including Greenwich Village) is one of the city's most classic neighborhoods.

What to Love

  • Gorgeous townhouses and tree-lined, off-grid streets
  • Exceptional high-end shopping on Bleecker Street
  • A city layout reminiscent of the streets in London
  • Priceless stretch of the Hudson River waterfront
  • Numerous boutique shops and restaurants

Local Lifestyle

This exclusively hip sect of the Hudson River is almost more fashionable for its large assortment of historic structures, including some of New York's most original remaining establishments. The high-living luxury of West Village is interwoven into its highly respected modern art amenities, and the entire West Village and Greenwich area looks like a picture taken of New York in its mid-century prime. Locals have a wide variety of historically significant cultural amenities at hand, along with a remarkable assortment of international cuisine, designer shopping, and outstanding art.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

You wouldn't know White Horse Tavern is the second oldest surviving bar in New York from the looks of it alone. Once you've adjusted to the intimately relaxed and laid-back vibe, though, the space should give you some sense of the location's palpable historical importance. You'll find your Italian cravings met in full at Sant Ambroeus West Village, with an incredibly posh interior dining space and unique outdoor seating that's perfect for a candlelit dinner with your better half.

Palma is another fantastic Italian option, serving organic ingredients in a stucco, almost adobe-style dining space and their garden-area seating is remarkably lush and private. Little Owl's cheerful and naturally lit dining area is the perfect space to casually enjoy world-class brunch favorites, grilled classics, pastry desserts, and much more. For a real cult classic, visit Magnolia Bakery, which serves the tastiest sweet treats imaginable.

Things to Do

Jackson Square is one of New York's oldest parks, featuring a classy fountain and impeccably landscaped hedges and floral displays. Since 1935, The Village Vanguard has provided cutting-edge jazz and big band performances from some of the greatest acts. The intimate seating area has exceptional acoustics, and you'll immediately feel like you're a part of a tide-like cultural force in West Village.

Art lovers don't need to travel to the Upper East Side to get their highbrow art fix — the Whitney Museum of American Art features illustrious modern works from some of the contemporary art world's most notable figures. Being an exclusively modern art museum, the exhibits are bursting with novelty. At the top level is a chic, laid-back bar and café, where like West Village itself, you can nourish your appetite just as well as your aesthetics.
