The Astor Alive! outdoor performing arts festival returns to Astor Place on September 23 for a day of FREE dance, music, poetry and cabaret.
The third Positively 8th Street Festival of the summer was a vibrant colorful day of music, arts, crafts, pop-up restaurants, bars, parks and playgrounds. It was a day to celebrate the diversity, vitality and energy of 8th Street, and its importance to the sustained health of our neighborhood and community.
8th Street would never be the same when Jonny Cohen and Michael Lagnese opened up 8th Street Winecellar 10 years ago. In honor of their ten-year milestone, celebrate by reading Jonny's fascinating road to opening one of downtown's most popular bars.
Macdougal Street between West 8th Street and Washington Square North was renamed Norman Buchbinder Way, honoring the founder of Village Alliance and loving man who dedicated himself to revitalizing 8th Street and all of Greenwich Village.
The 24th Annual Meeting of the Village Alliance took place on June 20th in the splendid setting of the New York Studio School.
Do you ever wonder about that vacant storefront or the current climate of the Greenwich Village retail market? If you do, then read our Quarterly Village Retail Report.
Astor Place has long been a nexus of spontaneous urban rituals, community gatherings, creative flash mobs, yarn-bombs and mischievousness! Among all this dynamism though there had never been a Silent Disco, all that changed on June 9th with the first ever Astor Blaster Silent Disco, one of a series of events to celebrate this year’s 50th birthday of the “Cube”.
The Positively 8th Street Festival returned on Saturday for the first of three summer dates to celebrate everything 8th Street!!
Drawing on the storied creative and musical heritage of West 8th Street, the Positively 8th Street Festival celebrated the eclectic history of this legendary Village street with music, art, creativity, food, drink, story sharing and amazing people.
On the first truly hot day of 2017 Astor Place sizzled with colorful creativity as Creativity Cubed returned for the first of three such events this summer.
Our FREE Summer Walking Tours are back, beginning June 3rd! Steeped in artistic, political and progressively social history, Greenwich Village today remains a cultural melting pot! See for yourself on our tours!
