West VillageNew York

This center for arts and culture is also one of the few places located off of the grid of Manhattan’s streets.

Many first-time visitors to the West Village remark at how European it feels. Handsome coffee shops and boutiques line cobblestone streets, and the smell of gourmet food lingers around many brownstone façades. Shop for beautifully restored vintage furniture and enjoy a strong coffee brew at Caffé Reggio, one of the oldest coffee shops in New York City. Its espresso machine dates back to 1902.

Take a leisurely stroll on the High Line Park, an elevated disused railroad track that has become a trendy garden, park and sculpture gallery. Spend a romantic sunset at Hudson River Park, which faces the Hudson River and gorgeous views of New Jersey.

The West Village has long been a place of tolerance, making it one of New York City’s richest centers for the arts and gay communities. Have a beer at the historic Stonewall Inn, a bar that was instrumental in the gay liberation movement. Snap your fingers at a jazz show in the Village Vanguard, which has been hosting jazz performances since 1935. See a famous blues artist play at Blue Note.

Bordered by Greenwich Village and Chelsea, the West Village is a good place to start a busy day of sightseeing. Spend time in Washington Square Park, just over the border in Greenwich Village. Go gallery hopping in the art district of Chelsea. Make time to see the world-famous Gogosian Gallery.

Come to the West Village around mealtime so that you can sample one of the many gourmet restaurants this area is known for. Eat peanut butter, jelly and Earl Grey pain perdu at a romantic restaurant. Try a pasta tasting menu or unwind with more casual fare at a New York-style pizzeria.

The West 4th Street station has access to many train lines, so you will have no problem getting to the West Village from other parts of the city. Make sure you bring your walking shoes, however you come. It is going to be a busy day exploring all of the beautiful West Village neighborhood.
