West Village Wanderings

I absolutely love the West Village in New York, it has such a laid back and cool feel to it. I really don't know where I would compare it to in London as it's really chilled out but also beautiful so it's kind of in between Shoreditch and Islington maybe. Every street in Greenwich is filled with beautiful trees and lined with brownstone houses, the kind that are identical to Carrie Bradshaws apartment.

We visited Greenwich twice during our trip, the first time we didn't spend too much time there so I felt like we needed a full day of exploring.

We spent hours wandering around the idyllic streets popping in and out of coffee shops and cafes for the odd break. On our walk we found Aria, a beautiful little wine bar that looks like it came right out out of a Pinterest page. It had bright white ceramic tiles, old mirrors and shelves and shelves of wines and spirits. We stopped of for a few nibbles and non-alcoholic refreshments but I would love to go back in the evening as I think it would be so beautiful at night.

After Aria we continued to walk around until our feet felt like they were going to fall off and we headed back to the hotel. That evening we ventured over to Brooklyn to visit some friends of ours, which I was particularly excited about as I'm obsessed with Girls. I didn't manage to take any photos but I would really recommend going to Williamsburg. There are so many independent bars and restaurants and like the West Village it has a lovely relaxed and personal feel to it. 

I think the next time we go to New York I'd like to stay in this area, the only problem is that all the hotels are located uptown so we may have to do an Air BnB stay.
