Although I have visited the city of New York many times before, somehow the meatpacking district always eluded my attention. Not this time though. According to my daughter an absolute "must-see" . So we added some milage on our Metrocards and went. The area borders Greenwich Village and consists of a huge old industrial building that has been transformed to... More

The Meatpacking District became fashionable and modern. On one hand you can enjoy looking at old and traditional NY architecture and on the other hand this is a modern, trendy young developing area. We especially loved it during the night, when the area is fully alive. So many restaurants and cool bars (we recommend Spice Market restaurant).

This area is definitely worth to be visited when you are visiting New York. The best way to come here is walking down the High Line, then you are ending in the center of this district.

I used to live here, and it's my favorite part of NYC (along with the West Village). Cobblestone streets, lots of bars and restaurants. If you miss this during your trip, you're not getting the full Manhattan experience.

... and a lot of good ones. Good in combination when paying the high Line park a visit and then have dinner or lunch there. Also great roof top bars/restaurants, probably the best in town.

Only visited this area to go to the Samsung shop, its not really a shop you can't buy anything !!. BUT you can try out all the latest gadgets without feeling hassled to buy anything. A really fantastic experience the VR 'trips' alone made the trek across town worthwhile. Staff were knowledgeable (seemed to be a lot of security about),... More

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.
