West Village - Meatpacking District

The West Village and Greenwich Village stretch from 14th to Houston Street between the Hudson River and Broadway, with Sixth Avenue demarcating the two neighborhoods. 

The West Village is home to celebrities and fashion luminaries as well as families and young singles wishing to lead a fairly low-key life behind elegant brick facades. 

Several high-rises and loft buildings including the rippling facade of One Jackson Square and Richard Meier's tower at 173-176 Perry Streets contrast with classically beautiful brick townhouse apartments including a handful of notable restored carriage-houses yet still manage to make the neighborhood feel warm and welcoming and define the residential areas of the West Village. 

A distinct European flair pervades tiny cafes and shops among the jumble of winding, tree-lined streets. Some of the City's finest restaurants are here as well. Apartment prices remain high despite economic fluctuations: Some say the West Village is downtown's most desirable residential area, and its future is sure to be reinforced by the emergence of many architectural projects along the High Line just to the north in Chelsea. Subways- A, B, C, D, E, F,V at West 4th Street or N, R at 8th Street are convenient to Village residents as well.
