The Meatpacking District, is good to see from Chelsea Market up to Hells Kitchen via walking the Highline, then you can pick and choose where you want to go down to street level for a drink food etc, its also a good area just to wander around the streets and see what you come across.

Lots of historical buildings and close to the High Line. The area is changing to a fun and artsy neighbourhood!

When I first started coming to the Meatpacking District, it was full of hookers, drug addicts, meat packers, food distributors and lower middle-class housing. Today, it's high-end all the way, from trendy bars and restaurants, to hotels, fashion retail establishments.

There are some tell tale signs of "the old days" with the au currant shops and restaurants. Spice Market restaurant in my opinion is all hype with less than average portions and very pricey at that. When we were there there wasen't any air conditioning and staff lacking in interest. Live just East of restaurant and never went back. Pastis... More

Good place to hang out with some friends. Plenty of good eats, good spots for a drink or just a good place to take a walk in a historic part of NYC!

Lovely place to stroll around and pick up the High Line. Well worth a visit. Advice: Buy an ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery. Wow - super tasty and loads od flavours to choose from.

This neighborhood has something for everyone. Restaurants, hotels and great shopping. And of course the High Line. If you are a tourist with a limited time in the city, the High line is fun to explore...

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
