"A wonderful and charming street...."

I have been coming here since the mid-70’s every time I am in NY. There are a lot of charming little places to eat and shop in the West Village, but the Corner Bistro on the corner of Jane Street brings me back to this area every time. The Bistro burgers are not to be believed. You can play chess and I once overheard two men talking about signing Lee Remick and Steve McQueen to a movie deal. Ok, it was over 30 years ago, but it is still full of artsy and entertainment types. This street is a wonderful place for a romantic stroll on a Sunday afternoon.

"West 4th Street"

West 4th is an interesting find on the Lower West Side near the financial district. The street is overall very vivacious and artsy and appeals to both a young and old crowd. You might enjoy eating at Mary's Fish Company, Extra Virgin, or the Chow Bar! In terms of being a residential street, I think that the prices might be a little too steep for people on a tight budget!

West 4th Street is close to the following metro stations: many metros and It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is moderate, and it is a good neighborhood for most people.

"Vibrant city center - a great place for film"

With both IFC Center and Film Forum nearby, West forth street is a great haven for cinema buff's. It is a great place for a date night. Good restauraunts like Red Bamboo, Vegetarian's Paradise, and Gobo are in the immediate vicinity. Lots of nice pubs...and of course the films!! Neighborhood is mixed with young and old and a celebrity or two.

"West 4th - My Favourite St in Manhattan"

We live just around the corner from West 4th, but we spend many lazy afternoons walking down there for coffee or brunch. It's probably one of the most beautiful streets in Manhattan. It's also surprisingly quiet considering how close you are to 7th Avenue. But that's why it's the village, because it genuinely feels like your in a village surrounded by some of the best restaurants in Manhattan.. Many people don't even know this type of area exists in NYC, so come down take a look - but don't stay - we like it just the way it is... BTW, if you need extra encouragement to come down, Gisele Bundchen (Brazilian supermodel) eats at our favourite Brunch restaurant most weekends, 'Extra Virgin'.... go for the French toast...
