Top 20 East Village, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
The East Village is considered the birthplace of punk, and while the neighbourhood has undergone plenty of change since then, the area retains its gritty charm. Loaded with dives, grungy tattoo parlours, old-school record stores, vintage shops and tonnes of cool restaurants, and bars - it sort of feels like the West Village before it became gentrified. It has been home to countless artists and musicians over the years and remains popular with young artists and students. This is a great part of town for vibrant, laid back night-life - think low-lit lounges and cheap eats. One thing to know – New York is a very busy city with lots going on (it’s not called “the city that never sleeps” for nothing). As part of a truly authentic New York experience, you can expect a fair amount of noise and construction coming from the streets, whether it be a passing delivery truck, honking yellow taxis, or roadwork. Remember that those impressive skyscrapers do come at a cost – scaffolding can be part of the architectural landscape.
