"Two much commerce"

West, as it starts in Battery Park City, is surrounded by school so it's not much to look at. There's a business college on the east side that's a bit of an eye sore and Stuyvesant High on the west side that is the best public school in Manhattan. Stuy High is actually pretty cool looking and has quite the reputation, so if you have to send your kid to public school, this is the place. The block ends with a small but lovely park called Washington Market. So, basically, this is a student mecca kind of block.
Across Chambers you have two more public schools but these are for the little kiddies that are going to go to Stuy High one day. There's also one apartment high rise but there's not much to look at or do here unless you are eight years old or the parent of an eight year old. There's a ballpark and more apartment buildings at Warren and then the street becomes abruptly commercial and very Fidi in feel.
At Vesey you have such boredom curing and aesthetically pleasing as the Goldman Sachs building and the Verizon headquarters. Across, Vesey, you run into the World Trade Center and that's the end of West's run through Battery Park City. Not so much, huh? It's really boring, not much to look at and there is absolutely zero neighborhood feel outside of the schools. It's a hike from any sort of good restaurant, theatre, anything. So, I would not ever want to live on West this far down.
  • Close to the park
  • Commercial buildings
  • No energy
  • No bar or restaurant scene

"The financial street"

West Street runs along the Hudson River. It extends from Battery Park to W 14th St. Its southern tip hosts the downtown famous skyscrapers. It borders the memorial of Ground Zero and The World Financial Center. The last one is an interesting building. Inside there are many shops and restaurants, but the part I like the most is the winter garden, with its beautiful glass ceiling and high palm trees. This garden was severely damaged after 09/11, but it has now reopened and offers great live performances.

Uraniumfish Yes, but it is also known as New York 9A, continues all the way up Manhattan.
