The West Village's narrow, cozy and crooked streets and 19th Century brownstones give it a colonial feel. Indeed it looks like a small European town in the middle of the nation’s biggest city. In spite of its laid-back appearance the West Village is a fast-paced place with many shoppers, diners, and art aficionados. Next to townhouses the West Village sees classic artists lofts as well as new residential towers facing the Hudson River. The Meatpacking District offers endless dining and nightlife opportunities and is considered the most fashionable of New York. Casual shopping is possible along Bleecker Street and there are plenty of secret restaurants and bars in the maze of little streets that are primarily residential. The popularity of neighboring SoHo and Chelsea districts to the south and north have greatly reinforced its desirability as well as inflated the cost of its housing.
