"Sleepy part of the street"

Hudson is a pretty cool street around the West Village but it's really sleepy is it enters Soho. The sleepy is kind of nice because it's definitely quiet, but there aren't any bars or restaurants and it's pretty far from transportation. Also, this part of Hudson is a little sketchy at night because of the lack of people. But, if you're more interested in quiet and lack of traffic than nightlife and the like, Hudson isn't a bad place to live. It's just pretty pricey considering what the area has to offer.
The corner of Hudson and Clarkson is home to the radio state Hot 97 that wouldn't be noteworthy aside from the fact that this seems to be the spot where rappers like to settle rivalries with gunfire. Lil Kim got into her notorious kerfuffle that led to prison here and 50 cent and the Game got into a gun war in front of the radio station a few years later. I find this location so bizarre because it's right on the precipice of the West Village which is one of the more expensive - less rappy areas in the city.
Another bizarre building for the neighborhood is on the corner of Hudson and Houston. Across the street from Saatchi and Saatchi is a massive pile built around 1930 that used to be a warehouse for all of the goods seized at customs. Now it just seizes people from customs. Kidding. Sort of. It's now the INS detention center where they have a lot of "special guests" or political prisoners. Interestingly, this is also the building where I renewed my passport last year. I guess that kind of makes sense in a sad way.
Across King Street is the famous Jacques Torres Chocolate Haven. You can get the most amazing hot chocolate here that you've ever had in your life once you've been released from the INS. You can also get the most amazing hot chocolate you've ever had in your life if you haven't been detained. And, this is the spot. It's famous for a well-deserved reason.
As Hudson continues south, the majority of the street is big apartment buildings. There aren't really any bars or restaurants and there are only a few businesses. Skylight Studio -- a massive gallery and performance hall -- is on Hudson and Spring and Edelman PR is directly across the street. Other than that, there is pretty much nothing on the street but residential buildings. . . and the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.
  • Quiet
  • Some green
  • No bar or restaurant scene
  • Transportation isn't ideal
