I do however, like the West Village/Soho. It has a village-type feel. Very close to shopping, great restaurants, etc. As far as having more available to you, I say the West Village. But I think that the UWS is more residential/family friendly and less crime.
Oh ******, now I have just confused you and myself. I say go with your gut when you visit you will know or just listen to your husband. Good Luck!!!
From what I have been told by other people the UWS has issues with schools as they are very full and I may not get the schools for my daughter I want. The West Village does also have good schools but not those issues. Its the proximity to central park that draws me to the UWS as our kids need to have somewhere to play.
