Car Hire Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village Guide

Despite its cleaned up image, there are still aspects of Greenwich Village which are worthy of your time. Washington Square Park is where it really all began and you can wander through the gardens, stopping to listen to musicians or watch artists at work and stand underneath the arch that is iconic of the park. It’s at night where you’ll see more life in the village when the workers who have spent the day in the offices of Manhattan go out to a bar or to watch a show. The Cherry Lane Theatre or the Bitter End are two popular venues for shows or live music.


Greenwich Village Directions

Take the New Jersey Turnpike from the airport, connect to the Pulaski Skyway and onto the Lincoln Parkway and you’ll be in Greenwich Village in less than half an hour.


Greenwich Village Parking

Parking numbers and options are extensive at Newark and the short term parking is immediately in front of the semi-circular terminal. Long term parking is some distance away but a shuttle service operates to reduce the journey time. Valet parking is also available for those in a rush.


Greenwich Village Flight Information

Although New York’s LaGuardia Airport is slightly closer, it is mainly a domestic airport whilst Newark has several direct flights from London making that extra mile journey less of a strain when compared to connecting flights.


Hotels Near Greenwich Village Airport

Sadly there aren’t too many traditional hotels in Greenwich Village since its gentrification. Many are chains and upmarket hotels with upmarket prices. Park South is a more traditional hotel and costs around $70 a night whilst for something completely different try the futuristic Dream Downtown with a space theme and a price tag of around $85 a night.


Greenwich Village Time Zone

Greenwich Village is five hours behind Greenwich Mean Time and located in the Eastern Time Zone (GMT-5)

Greenwich Village Info

Greenwich Village is a popular tourist destination in the middle of Lower Manhattan. Once a shabby district and home to artists and musicians, it has been gentrified and taken over by the middle classes of New York, losing a little of its character in doing so. Travellers to ‘the Village’ as it is colloquially known are now presented with a sanitized version complete with upscale hotels and tourist tat.

Greenwich Village Trivia:
  • Prior to the arrival of Dutch settlers, Native Americans cultivated tobacco on the land
  • The Dutch founded a settlement there in the middle of a pine forest
  • The name Greenwich means ‘pine district’
  • Until the 1960s, it was considered a low cost, Bohemian neighbourhood, populated by artists
