New York City West Village

Manhattan, New York City, New York, 10014

The Basics

The bohemian West Village—which served as the backdrop for New York’s LGBTQ rights movement—manages to be both trendy and quaint, and the best way to explore it is on foot. Stop by the many boutiques and cafés; look for filming locations and historic town houses; or take a walk in lovely Hudson River Park, a waterfront expanse on Manhattan’s west side.

Most hop-on hop-off bus tours pass through the West Village. Foodies can opt for a culinary walking tour that hits neighborhood eateries, with tastings along the way. For something totally different, consider an exhilarating helicopter tour for panoramic views of the neighborhood.
