About the Neighborhood

In terms of charm and/or adorability, the West Village is hard to beat. It’s near impossible to one-up the tangle of cobblestoned streets where most made-in-New York romantic comedies end in ardor, the cute corner where cupcakes first became a national obsession at the flagship Magnolia Bakery, the divey bars playing host to incredible jazz musicians and the endless cafes and restaurants where young couples tuck their limbs under tiny tables. And because it’s set on winding streets rather than the grid underlying most of Manhattan, the only way to know it is to wander it once and again.
 

Don’t judge it till you’ve tried it on a sunny day.

Pick up a delicious pie at John’s of Bleecker Street.

Magnolia cupcakes started it all.

West Village townhome dwellers don’t always do taxis.

A real West Villager can make stilettos and cobblestones jive.

A cozy haven for the obvious, plus English exports.

Peep cute pooches in Christopher Street’s Le Petit Puppy.

Organic Avenue is the morning-after answer.

Still delicious and celebrity-filled after more than ten years.

Good for a saunter from Greenwich Ave to the Hudson.
