The West Village is a quaint neighborhood with an incredible retail scene. With next-to-no office buildings in the area, the streets have a lovely calm air to them. A go-to area for the well-heeled, the West Village is a classy area with a vast array of restaurants, cafes, bars and stylish hangouts.
The towering trees and brownstone homes give the neighborhood a feeling of relaxed luxury while the designer label hub or Bleeker Street features some of the biggest names in fashion retail. Sandro, Burberry, A.P.C and Paul Smith are just a few world-renowned brands that call the West Village home. The luxury feel is accentuated by the many high-end cosmetics and homewares brands here, with Diptyque, Aesop and Jo Malone London all settled on Bleeker.
