Our top West Village moving tips

Finding your way around in the West Village is a bit different than other parts of the city. Living “off the grid” here means that the streets don’t conform to the rest of the borough’s grid-like traffic. This is because the neighborhood was settled in its ways before the Manhattan street grid was made official in 1811.

With that said, the borders of West Village are generally understood to be from 14th street to Houston Street (North to South) and Greenwich Ave/Sixth Ave to the Hudson River (East to West). The Chelsea and Soho neighborhoods are close by.

Before you wander around the quirky, but charming streets, there’s more to know about the West Village:

  • Cost of living: It’s generally understood that living in NYC comes with a serious price tag. The West Village has a higher cost than some other neighborhoods in the five boroughs. The overall cost of living is over three times the national average, and the heavy hitter category is housing — at almost 7.5 times higher than the national average. Folks looking to sign a lease in this part of Manhattan are looking at an average of $4,300 for a 1-bedroom apartment. Purchasing a home means listings are around a median house cost of $1.8 million, which includes a $2,300 median cost per square foot. If you decide that this is the right neighborhood for you, you may be able to make an economical choice with transportation. The city’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) provides great options to getting most places in the city at a reasonable price — $2.75 per ride on the subway or buses. Citibike may be a good option to get around and get active, with memberships starting at around $15 a month. Of course, there’s also taxis and ride share options that will vary in price based on where you’re going.
  • A feast for every budget: All diners will find something to satisfy their taste buds in this neighborhood — at every price-point. For a curated dining experience, book a table or a spot at the counter at Sushi Nakazawa and try the exclusive nigiri-sushi “omakase” menu. If European fare piques your interest, Via Carota has a menu full of enticing market-fresh Italian dishes. Sevilla Restaurant on Charles Street features Spanish flavors (think paella) served by waiters in short tuxes. Those in the mood for more casual fare will be happy with plentiful neighborhood options as well. Meet up for a casual fun night of chips and salsa with a side of margaritas at Tortilla Flats. Or, maybe you’ll fancy a plant-based brunch with all your veg-friendly friends and The Butcher’s Daughter may be just the ticket. A low-key joint may satisfy your craving for beer and burgers on the cheap at Corner Bistro, at the corner of West 4th and Jane Street.
  • Arts, culture, and entertainment: This neighborhood confirms that downtown’s where it’s at. Art afficiendos will find galleries galore, including Eli Klein and Blank Space. If you find that the stage is calling you, there are several off-broadway theaters to check out. For a night of cabaret and maybe a little bit of the piano bar, you’ll find The Duplex on Christopher Street meets your needs. Converted from an old box factory in 1923, the Cherry Lane Theater on Commerce Street is the longest-running off-broadway theater in the city. Perhaps the theater you had in mind was more of the art house motion picture variety. Not to worry: you can buy tickets to a screening of a late-night classic or a brand new indie flick at the IFC Center. To share community and celebrate LGBTQ+ history, you can visit the LGBT Community Center on W. 13th Street. The Center has a national history archive that collects and preserves documentation of the lives of LGBTQ New Yorkers.
  • Nightlife: The night time is the right time to enjoy what this neighborhood has to offer. You could beat the end-of-the-weekend blues at Sunday Disco Tea Dance (no cover charge!) at The Monster. For those that nod to the beat of a different drum, West Village is home to many iconic jazz clubs. You may find yourself digging a performance while sipping on a libation at 55 Bar, the speakeasy-esque Smalls, or the storied Village Vanguard. Maybe a dive bar that’s a staple in the New York nightlife scene is what you’re searching for, and if so, Marie’s Crisis is what you’ll find. Or, if “anything-goes” and cheap drinks are your vibe, the queer-friendly Rockbar may be more your speed. For a good time that can be enjoyed by all, this neighborhood will answer your call.
  • Finding quiet in your neck of the woods: Of course, Washington Square Park and the High Line are nearby to get some fresh air near the neighborhood. But, for those seeking outdoor sanctuary near their home in the West Village, there are some spots a bit closer that are more intimate. For instance, James J Walker Park is a cozy greenspace that’s begging you to crack open a book on a sunny day. Good thing it’s within walking distance to a branch of the New York Public Library! Winding paths and charming iron light poles invite you to step into a Victorian New York at Abingdon Square Park on Hudson Street. Another tranquil oasis in the city can be found at the Gardens at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields. Benches are tucked into the bountiful flora in a greenspace that’s open to the public. Birders are on notice: You may also share a seat with one (or more) of the over 100 species of birds that have been sighted in the gardens. Peaceful places can be found in this part of Manhattan, even among the hustle and bustle of the city.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
