West Village Reviews

All Categories
Really wonderful place to grow up, but definitely becoming more gentrified/losing its character. The Meatpacking District has become a very popular area for young partygoers and tourists, which has made the area a lot more expensive. Bleecker Street is now all high end boutiques. Still, there are good schools, playgrounds, and it's overall very safe, so it's a good place for children. The Whitney and smaller pop up galleries mean there is always something to see or do, and it is very accessible by a multitude of trains. More diverse in food than in people or income.

Amazing neighborhood, however you are mostly paying for the location as most apartments are really small.
Beautiful residential neighborhood!! Right next to Chelsea and Meatpacking, and super close to SoHo.
