Heart of Manhattan – A West Village Guide

August 4, 2016

West Village is my favorite neighborhood in Manhattan. So I decided to do my  next iconic New York shooting in West Village.(Check Times Square and Flatiron – Silicon Alley shootings.)

I consider West Village as heart of New York. The places you’ve seen on movies are generally from West Village. So don’t spoiled your New York experience when your path crossed to chaotic Midtown streets. One of the top cafes restaurants are in West Village. No doubted that most of the celebrities buy their house from this neighborhood. Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler, Julienne Moore just afew of them. (Check the whole list.) Of course West Village is the homeland of  TV shows. Sex and the City or Friends (was produced in LA but the building you’ve seen it from Village) actually  are the best known ones. (see below for addresses.)

I want to write about my favorite places in West Village in this post. When you visit New York, you can add these places to your agenda! Bedford, Bleecker, Bank, Christopher and Greenwich Streets are my favorite ones. You can definitely find cutest places around all these streets.

1- Magnolia Bakery (401 Bleecker Street): The creator of cupcakes! First seen in Sex and the City and now everybody is crazy about it. My favorites are German Chocolate Cupcakes, Banana pudding and Chocolate pudding cake!

2- Carrie Bradshaw House (66 Perry Street)

3-Friends’ Building (90 Bedford Street)

4- Bantam Bagels (283 Bleecker) They become famous with Shark Tank. Still you can find the bagels in nay Starbuck now, you can spotted the founders any time when you stop by.

5- Turks & Frogs (323 11th Street) One of the best and stylish Turkish in West Village. Everybody is crazy about small (Meze) platters.

6- Dominique Bistro(14 Christopher Street) This place is used be Whynot Coffee. But now this gorgeous French Restaurant

7- Fat Cat (75 Christopher Street) is always a good idea for good Jazz and for good game night.

8- Tartine (253 11th Street) Best brunch place ever and prices are reasonable. My favorite one after Cafe Henri is closed.

So far I remember these but I’ll add more time to time. It is time to share my West Village look. I prefer something laid back and comfy like the village itself. This heels are so pretty if slings don’t slide down all the time. Polka dot is the reminder of old Jazz times of 40’s when the neighborhood is full of hipster after WWII.

Please comment your favorite West Village place, I’ll add them to my list.
