"On W 8th Street"

W 8th St is a comparably short street. It runs between Broadway and 6 Av. Like many other New York streets, it has many shops. It is not one of the nicest streets of the Greenwich Village. However, it is definitely in a great position: From here there is an easy access to New York cultural events and nightlife.

"West 8th Street"

Overall, this street didn't really have a lot to offer in terms of entertainment, but plenty in
in terms of convenience. The thing I like about Brooklyn is that it is a very convenient place
and there is always something to do or see. I think that Brooklyn is great, and this street in
particular really articulates why people are willing to "borough" it out and leave behind
the excess and inconvenience of the city.

"A woman's dream street"

Men, this street may be one to avoid if you don't want to be out all day. This street has some of the most expensive, fancy shoe stores in the world. Any make, any brand, all of them are here and waiting for that lucky woman to come and give them a good home. There are a few places to eat, but the main reason one comes here is for the shoes. If there are men out there who are in love with shoes, you will have a good time here too.

"The New New York City Shoe Market"

Although there are many shoe stores in Manhattan the "Offical Shoe District" is located in Greenwich Village on 8th Street between 2nd and 6th Ave. Many Shoe stores can be found along this strech of 8th Street. I am not a big shoe shopper myself but I can certainly appreciate the wide variety of shoes available in the shoe district.
