Destination guide

Soak up Greenwich Village's artsy ambience

Greenwich Village has served for centuries as a magnet for artists, writers and leading liberal thinkers. While the radical communes and factory squats have made way for luxurious loft apartments and chic cocktail lounges, a bohemian vibe persists, with an array of indie theaters, late-night dive bars and jazz clubs to explore. A cosmopolitan population ensures aneclectic dining scene, with everything from spicy Ethiopian stews to comforting Vietnamese noodle soups on offer around the clock. And that's before you've factored in the cutting-edge galleries, chic boutiques and pristine parks you'll find on the doorstep of your Greenwich Village vacation rental.

Things to do

Mesmerizing museums and jaw-dropping views

You'll find a seemingly endless array of attractions within easy walking distance of your Greenwich Village vacation rental. The Whitney Museum of American Art boasts an awe-inspiring collection of 20th-century and contemporary art, including masterpieces by the likes of Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol. The High Line is, without doubt, NYC's quirkiest park. Built on an abandoned elevated rail track, this one-of-a-kind green urban playground boasts avant-garde artworks and some of the most breath-taking views in the city. If the sun's shining, enjoy downtime like a local with a game of chess in the iconic Washington Square Park.

Activities

Shop ‘til you drop or laugh ‘til your sides split

Greenwich Village has much to offer the discerning shopper, with a wealth of treasure troves specialising in books, records and hip vintage clothing. If you're hankering for some evening entertainment, you're in the right spot. The legendary Greenwich Village Comedy Club is the best place in town to catch the hottest emerging stand-up comics. The Village is also home to some of the most revered off-Broadway theaters, where you might discover anything from experimental puppetry to the next big smash hit musical. Afterwards, kick back with a cocktail in a laid-back lounge bar, or check out some smooth live jazz.

Weather

Hazy summer days in Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village vacation rentals are highly sought-after at all times of year, but are in particularly high demand during the peak summer months of June to August, when it's typically warm and sunny outside. But while widespread air-conditioning makes it easy to escape the heat, be aware that it can get very humid. You may find the milder spring or fall months more agreeable, although less predictable weather means you may need to pack for varied conditions. The winter snow can be utterly enchanting, but it can also cause transport disruption, while the sub-zero temperatures won't be to everyone's taste.
