Uh - a lot of people like the area - it happens to be one of the more expensive areas in the city

lots of stores and groceries of all kind

walk to your friends in the EV or take a bus or a cab - a cab is not expensive going cross town - or get a year membership to citibike.

try to keep your eyes open and look around - I guess I am jaded but this is a lazy persons question and that attitude will not let you enjoy NYC

Depends what part of L.E.S, you can walk up E. Houston or hop on the bus that will take you Houston and 6th Ave. If you're on Essex St you can hop on the bus, M14 which goes across Essex and makes a left on 14th St across the city. You can walk up Houston or Grand St or any street that goes West and then on Bowery walk up Bleecker and that will put you in the heart of the village,or cab it on rainy and snowy days. Best of luck.

Hey Thea,

The West Village ranked the 8th best neighborhood in NYC according to StreetAdvisor.

Great for:
Neighborly Spirit
Eating Out
Clean & Green
Safe & Sound
Resale or Rental Value

Cost of Living
Lack of Traffic
Pest Free
Parks & Recreation

Families with kids
Trendy & Stylish

As any advice, YOU are the one that will like the neighborhood or not. Something as simple as the stores on the block where you could potentially live will make or break your West Village experience.

Best of Luck

you could take the 1 train to 14th or then hop the 2,3 to 42nd and then connect to grand central. On weekends, you may have some difficulty if they are doing track work. I would suggest an application for your smartphone called nycmate (this is not an advertisement). It lets you know what trains are running with delays. You will be in moderately close walking distance to a number of subway lines if your usual subway line is delayed. ... more
