Incentra Village House, an Historic Inn, was built in 1841, and occupies two brick landmark townhouses in New York City's Greenwich Village Historic District. As an attractive alternative to Midtown's steel and glass, the Village House offers our guests a warm welcome in our cozy front office which boasts antique furnishings and artwork. All of our guests are welcome to relax with our supply of newspapers, magazines, and books. To get to your room you'll wander down narrow halls and up charming old stairways to one of 12 unique rooms.
Incentra Village House is located at 32 Eighth Avenue between West 12th and Jane Streets, just above Abingdon Square. One of our major advantages is our location in the West Village, a pleasant and attractive residential neighborhood and the traditional center of gay life in New York City. With much of the area land-marked for historic preservation, the quaint atmosphere is of the early nineteenth century. Many streets are narrow and tree-lined and most houses are small with front gardens, ornamental ironwork and intimate private courts, which gives the area its distinctive charm.
Chelsea, just a few blocks uptown from Incentra and widely considered the new heart of gay New York City, enjoys a mix of attractions similar to the Village: shops and restaurants of all kinds; blocks of attractive brownstones and historic institutions; bars, taverns, clubs, and major retail districts. You'll find a liquor store, laundromat, dry cleaner, bike rental, and barber shop all within a few blocks of Incentra.
The Meatpacking District, a 24-hour neighborhood just a few blocks to the West of Incentra, offers trendy new restaurants, cafes, clubs, and art galleries. An area that has retained its character with historic architecture and cobble stone streets, designers, architects and creative industry headquarters have moved in along meatpacking plants, creating a destination known for cutting edge fashion, design, food, and culture.
The Meatpacking District is anticipating the development of Pier 57, located at the end of West 15th Street, as an urban marketplace scheduled for 2014, and the arrival of the Whitney Museum opened in May, 2015.
The High Line, where visitors get to walk in the "park in the sky" was been developed from the abandoned elevated freight train tracks of the 1930's, and runs from Gansevoort Street, through the Meatpacking District, to West 20th Street. This quintessential New York City landscape has recently opened Phase 2, running to West 30th Street.
The Hudson River Park, stretching five miles from Battery Park in Lower Manhattan to 59th St, is the largest park created in Manhattan since Central Park. The Park incorporates many renovated piers on the Hudson River providing sports fields, waterfront access, landscaped lawns and is a favorite spot for kayakers, rollerbladers, runners and cyclists. Throughout the park, visitors enjoy panoramic views that include the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Hudson River, and the New Jersey skyline.
We recommend a yellow taxi in from airports or car service (call ahead) for in and out to airports. The closest Subway Station is at Eighth Avenue and 14th Street and the blue line subways A, C, and E trains. There is on-street parking available, however, we recommend two nearby Parking Garages.
We have 10 studios, most contain one double bed, some offer separate beds, and our larger studios comfortably accommodate up to 4 people. All rooms include a private bath,
air conditioner, TV, telephone, coffee maker and many include a kitchenette and fireplace.
