Destination guide

East Village

Once the epicenter of New York counterculture, the East Village may well have cleaned up its act, but a beguiling bohemian vibe still prevails. Its streets throng with a thrillingly cosmopolitan crowd of artists, students and creative professionals, while its cutting-edge galleries, legendary music venues and off-Broadway theaters draw culture vultures from far and wide. East Village vacation rentals include stylish loft apartments and exquisitely refurbished townhouses, so you can experience NYC like a local. Across the neighborhood, you can expect to find bustling bars, chic independent shops and restaurants serving mouth-watering cuisine from every corner of the globe.

Things to do

Iconic urban vistas and awe-inspiring art

Within easy reach of your East Village vacation rental you'll find all of Manhattan's iconic sights competing for your attention. If you're a New York first-timer, get your bearings in unforgettable fashion with a trip up the Empire State Building. Further breathtaking urban vistas await at the High Line, a one-of-a-kind elevated park located on a disused railroad, which is also an awe-inspiring open-air art gallery. You could spend months exploring Manhattan's blockbuster museums, but the East Village is home to quirkier cultural gems, such as the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space and the Museum of the American Gangster.

Activities

Seductive shopping in the East Village

The East Village shopping scene offers an effortlessly hip, idiosyncratic alternative to the flagship stores of 5th Avenue. Here you'll find treasure-filled antique emporiums, quirky vintage fashion stores and endlessly captivating indie record and book shops. East Village eateries are a similarly eclectic bunch – take your pick from awe-inspiring Asian fusion cuisine or fiery modern Mexican fare, buttery lobster rolls or gut-busting brunches. After dinner, savor a digestif in a sleek cocktail lounge or low-lit dive bar, or burn off some of those calories by dancing the night away in a pulsing local club.

Weather

Lazy summer days in the East Village

New York is one of the world's most thrilling year-round destinations, so East Village vacation rentals are always in high demand. Early booking is particularly advisable if you're planning a trip during the peak summer season of June to August, when the days are long and the weather is typically hot. Thunderstorms are not uncommon, however, and humidity can also be high at this time of year. For an action-packed city break, you may prefer the milder climes of spring or fall. Winters can be extremely cold, so be sure to wrap up warm if visiting between December and February.

Natural features

Manhattan's pristine parks

While the relentless pace of Manhattan may be overwhelming at times, the island is dotted with lush green spaces and sprawling parks where you can recharge your batteries at your own pace. Hudson River Park is an expansive waterfront recreation space ideal for a brisk morning jog or long leisurely walk. Meanwhile, the dense woodlands of sprawling Central Park are home to a surprising array of wildlife, from cute gray squirrels to chirping songbirds.
