The West Village is a popular area, especially for the LGBT community and students of NYU. Sadly, it has been invaded by various franchises, but there is still a bunch of Village flavor on side streets which includes piano bars, odd shops, and independent ice cream stores.
Here’s a taste of the neighborhood.
