“We are very excited to put a new face to our organization and to have the ability to feature artistic, historic and other aspects of the neighborhood that are just plain fun,” said William Kelley, Executive Director of the Village Alliance, “Promoting the idea that ‘The Village Starts Here,’ VillageAlliance.org will focus heavily on the blocks surrounding the gateways to Greenwich Village, including 8th Street, Sixth Avenue, University Place, Broadway, Astor Place and St. Mark’s Place.”
“The new VillageAlliance.org is a great resource for our customers spending time in the Village,” said Richard Geist, CEO of Uncle Sam’s Army Navy on 8th Street, “not only will they find great deals on the website, but they can also plan a full day’s itinerary in advance.”
“The new website is a well-conceived calling card for the neighborhood,” said long-time Village resident and Village Alliance Board Member Michael Levine, “it’s a launching pad for anyone who wants a unique Village adventure.”
