I only have seen West Village full of people during the week-ends and pretending to be empty in the late late evening. And I kept reading about this charming place, and how everyone was in love with it, and how cute and cosy everything looked. Now I've seen it too - on my way home yesterday. Also after the big talks and Facebook postings about the Manhattanhenge sunsets and after waiting for them I can compare the other sunsets to it. I am happy to say, that the usual everyday sunsets are not a tiny bit less magic than the Manhattanhenge ones.
