"Not my favorite"

West 13th and the Hudson marks Pier 54 - where the Titanic was supposed to dock -- the survivors were taken just down the street to the Jane Hotel. It also marks the Highline. I've talked about it in other reviews. I don't think the Highline is off the charts cool now that it has been reopened. It used to be really cool when it was overgrown train tracks. Now, it's really nice and just a bunch of tourists walking slowly in a straight line. But, there are some pretty cool views from the Highline that you can't get really anywhere else in the city.
There's a terrible bar on Washington and 13th called Hogs and Heifers. If I were the president of my fraternity, perhaps I would like this place. But, other than that, I have no use for all of the bras on the ceiling and shot taking so I'm a pass on this place. The Bumble and Bumble school is just east of there. You can get haircuts for free there which is helpful for a lot of students and starving artists. On the corner of 13th and 9th is a terrible restaurant called Spice Market. My advice: skip this and go to Budakkan. You won't be sorry. Across the street from Spice is the Gansevoort Hotel. It's pretty awful here too. It's very trendy and European and loud and bright. Yuck. The block between Greenwich and 7th is like the liberal block of 13th. The LBGT Services Center, a giant Yoga Institute and a progressive church are all on this block. And, Anais Nin lived at 215 for 20 years.
There's mostly a lot of apartment buildings, Buildings that are a part of The New School and Parsons school of Design (the corner of 21 and 5th). It's a shame that none of the people that go to any of these schools can afford to live around them.
There are a couple of things to do on this street . . .but, the other 23 hours of the day, you should maybe spend your time elsewhere.
