West 4th St Between Washington Square West and 6th Ave

A very typical block for this neighborhood, this is just one incarnation of West 4th, which does an incredible job of meandering it's way through the West Village (It ends up intersecting a handful of other streets). With a church, some restaurants and a lineup of apartments (which I would be willing to bet are owned by NYU), this is another fine example of a self-contained street.

The anchoring corners are both rather busy. With the south east side of Washington Square Park on the east and the bustling insanity of 6th Avenue and the A, B, C, D, E, F, & V trains on the west, you can feel a bit blocked in by humanity.
