Top 20 West Village, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
The West Village sits in the western part of fabulously popular - and for good reason - neighbourhood of Greenwich Village. Much of the West Village’s charm rests in its 19th-century, beautifully-preserved townhouses and cobblestone streets, which look much the same as they did when the neighbourhood was at the centre of some of last century's most influential social and countercultural movements. These include the breakthrough of experimental theatre, Beat poetry in the 1950s, the fight for housing preservation in the 1960s, and the 1969 Stonewall Riots that spurred the national gay liberation movement. The West Village is certainly proud of its history. It's also very proud of its fabulous restaurants and photogenic streets. In short, this is a neighbourhood that's pretty hard to fault.
