Through the Local Lens

Experience authentic New York life in this iconic and historic neighborhood. Known for its cobblestone streets and elegant townhouses, the West Village is filled with the charming restaurants, intimate cocktail lounges, and coffee shops locals prefer.

Walk this quaint neighborhood on a guided tour, or wander on the streets of Bleecker, Christopher and Bedford. Along the way, pop in and grab some cheese and fresh bread at the historic Murray’s Cheese and Amy’s Bread, or a slice at the famous Joe’s Pizza.

From grab-n-go, to outdoor dining perfect for people watching, to romantic candle light dinners for two, the neighborhood is stocked with options to satisfy any appetite. Whatever you’re hungry for, you’ll find it. Spotted Pig and Minetta Tavern are repeatedly recognized for their world-renowned burgers. Waits can be long and reservations hard to come by, so be prepared – or just belly up and eat at the bar.

In the center of the village is Stonewall, the heart of a social movement that redefined the nation. Flags proudly on display, the neighborhood takes much pride in preserving and recognizing its diversity and role in American history.
