"Small West Village street"

Tucked away just south of West Houston Street, this sleepy street is well-placed conveniently between two subway stops, Spring Street for the A,C, and E trains, and Houston Street for the 1 and 2 trains. Also located near a number of municipal buildings, among them the U.S. Small Business Small Business Administration and National Archives, this area can feel a bit soulless, especially given the look and layout: a number of unattractive, boxy administrative buildings dominate this street, rather than the charming brick townhouses for which must of the West Village is known. There isn't much to do here - the area is primarily composed of offices - although those with a sweet tooth might want to supplement their rendez-vous with the National Archives with a trip to the Jacques Torres Chocolate Haven (although there's a wealth of standard fast-food and bagel-options as well for the less choosy). King Street is, overall, a primarily functional commercial area, albeit one with fewer culinary and nightlife options than elsewhere in the city. Its location, however, makes it a convenient commuter destination.

"Commuters delight on King Street"

Consider it one of those "pass through" streets. It is simply a residential street with nice buildings and a nice general atmosphere but the foot traffic is light and the businesses even lighter in the area. It is easily accessed though making it a contender for residential life. The 1 subway stops at Houston Street only one block up and the C,E are just two short blocks south at Spring Street. Overall it's a nice enough road that makes travel and commuting simple.

"Take it or Leave it."

I happened upon King Street when I was attempting to get from 8th to Hudson Street and while it was nice enough there wasn't anything that drew me to it. Last time I happened by it there was a good deal of construction going on. The Area towards 6th Avenue is much nicer and the apartment buildings appear well maintained and rather peaceful. It is close to a lot of amenities which is important for anyone moving into the city, but not a necessity for people simply visiting. There are a few subway stations in the general area which makes it easy to get too and from.

"Kings And Queens"

I really enjoyed the look and feel of King Street and all it had to offer in the neighborhood as a whole. Though there wasn't much happening on the street itself, there was a good vibe and some nice housing options. I think that it's a nice block in New York City, and was pretty clean.

King Street is also a wonderful place to begin your journey into the Village. It is close to the following metros: C,E at Spring Street and the 1 at Canal. It is also accessible by many buses. Foot traffic is fairly heavy and I would recommend the street to just about anyone!
Uraniumfish I found it totally ugly after Varick, and creepy and deserted right at Greenwich.
