The non typical grid structure that dominates this area plus the old charming buildings and brownstones in its landscape, makes anyone feel like you are visiting a small town somewhere in Europe.
The West Village is the best neighborhood to wander around through its tree lined streets. You can sit outside at your favorite restaurant to enjoy the sunshine and end your day looking at the sunset at the Hudson river. When you live in this neighborhood, this and more is available to you every day.
West Village apartments are reassuringly expensive compared to other Manhattan areas. The lowest priced apartment rentals in this neighborhood can be very small, so if you spend most of the day outside and you don't mind having kind of a hotel room as an apartment, then this can be a very nice option. So what kind of apartments can you find in the West Village?
Some of the pre-war buildings offer spacious layouts with a foyer entry and lots of closets, views are a luxury, but you may have your windows facing to a lot of trees. The Townhouses offer narrower and smaller apartments but in some of them you may enjoy high ceilings and decorative fireplaces. There are also some beautiful lofty spaces around for rentals.
