"A quiet street"

Mercer St extends from E 8th St to Canal St. It is a nice street not too trafficked. In the part crossing the Greenwich Village, there is a beautiful bookstore that also sells records. In its southern part, Mercer St hosts Soho’s elegant shops. In this part, Mercer Street retains its original Belgian block paving and has nice buildings. Unfortunately, it is hard to find apartments available here.

"Buy cheap books, view tall buildings"

There is a pretty cool outdoor flea market in this area that sells books and records, and especially caters to a younger demographic (being in the NYU neighborhood). Prices are pretty good, too, though maybe not as good as what you can buy from some of the homeless guys that sell stuff on the street illegally in the same area.

"Gallerinas and Coffee-junkies"

Galleries, coffeehouses and restaurants, oh my! Mercer Street offers a great atmosphere of class and casual rolled into one all along it's property. I love Mercer Street for it's eclectic but trendy style and it's offering of coffee shops and great food. Overall it's an amazing place to visit but is one of the less traveled roads in the area, from what i've seen, which makes it feel like your own private New York. I have nothing but love for the area.

"Charming Street, Good Shopping"

Mercer Street is in the heart of Soho, and you can find some great shopping and really interesting boutiques. It's a great little side street to visit if you choose to venture off Broadway when walking downtown, and get lost in the smaller streets cutting up Soho. It's a very chic and trendy area. I would really suggest it for anyone who's fashion-inclined.

"An overall GREAT experience"

This was the first place my brother took me when I first visited him. It left an awesome taste in my mouth, and I would love to come back to it one day. The cafes, coffee shops, and restauraunts are AMAZING, and are always humming with business. The music, book, and misc. stores are a great touch, and one can burn through money by simply visiting these stores.

"Home of Good Environments"

Mercer Street is the home of some really great establishments, with great environments. The cheap Japanese cafe Dojo is a must-visit. Also, think Coffee is my favorite coffee joint in the entire city. Although there is plenty of seating, it fills up regularly. Independent bookstores and music stores also make this street a must-see.
