Make a self catering apartment in Greenwich Village your home away from home

Greenwich Village is the historic Downtown district on the lower west side of South Manhattan Island, New York City. It is now a largely residential area and home to many upper middle class families and small businesses, but it was once a bohemian area teeming with immigrants, students and writers. It consequently has a great history and some interesting things to see and do.

Greenwich Village rental properties and apartments have been home to many writers and artists over the years. Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Marlon Brando and Bob Dylan all lived and worked in this vibrant area at one time or another. High-rent apartments and expensive townhouse accommodation rubs shoulders with small restaurants, cafés and antique shops in the charming backstreets of this neighborhood. Home of the first night court, the first film theatre and even the first pizza, Greenwich Village is now home to a large gay and lesbian community.

Things to do in Greenwich Village, New York City

Greenwich Village, New York is known for its eateries and its diverse history. You can combine the pleasures of both on the ‘Original Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour’, munching your way through countless Mom and Pop restaurants and Italian eateries as you learn about the history behind the many parks and buildings.

If that sounds a little too energetic, take the Double-Decker Bus Sightseeing Tour and learn about all the sights in Greenwich Village. The best thing is you can hop on and off as you please to explore a park, a museum or an attractive-looking restaurant.

Speaking of food, one must-see attraction in Greenwich Village is the famous Gray’s Papaya stand. It is located on the corner of 8th Street and Sixth Avenue, but you will see the line long before you see the name! For a ridiculously low price, you will be served two hot dogs with a choice of topping, plus a Papaya fruit drink. No fries, no alternatives, just the best hot dogs you will ever taste in the USA.

Places to visit in Greenwich Village, New York City

The heart of Greenwich Village is Washington Square, at the foot of the exclusive 5th Avenue. Start your visit at the Washington Memorial Arch in Washington Square Park and check out ‘The Row’ of Greek revival and federal-style town houses. Most of the accommodation here belongs to the NYU, including the huge Bobst Library and the Grey Art Gallery, which has interesting contemporary art exhibitions.

As you explore the gardens and tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village look out for number 18 West 11th Street. This modern building stands out from its 19th century red-brick neighbors as it was rebuilt in 1970 after a basement bomb factory blew up the original! A stuffed teddy bear usually occupies the front window and his outfit changes daily to amuse passers-by!
