WEST VILLAGE

PUBLISHED ON Oct 6, 2016

The West Village is bounded by the Hudson River, the south side of 14th Street, the north side of Houston Street, and the west side of Seventh Avenue and Seventh Avenue South. Formerly known as “Little Bohemia, West Village is a charming and coveted neighborhood reminiscing a European city with its narrow, winding tree-lined streets, timeless courtyards and magnificent 19th-century townhouses as well as the quaint converted stables. The neighborhood comes alive at night where people from everywhere of the city are attracted to the eateries and bars to drink and dance into the night while taking delight in the magnificent views of the Statue of Liberty and the New Jersey skyline.

Popular with families of affluent professionals and big-name celebrities, the West Village is easily accessible by public transportation but remains more sedate than neighboring Greenwich Village. Having a quaint, small-town vibe, West Village real estate offers splendid views overlooking the city and the river, boasting classic artists lofts and walk-ups in red brick townhouses as well as newly completed condominiums. Its average residential property price per sq. ft. is around US$ 2,372.
