The East Village's own "Mosaic Man" is back restoring the beloved light poles that were removed from their homes due to the Astor Place construction. The poles have remained neighborhood favorites for decades, and now it's the community's chance to support these iconic art pieces and their creator.
Saturday 27th November is Small Business Saturday and the perfect chance to show your love for small local businesses!
The Village Alliance Business Improvement District, City Lore and Greenwich Village Society for Historical Preservation will lead the unveiling of the Astor Place Mosaic Trail light poles, which have been restored and redesigned by local Jim Power, the “Mosaic Man”.
With America's favorite holiday right around the corner there are plenty of Thanksgiving themed specials and promotions at Village businesses and retailers.
With magical shop windows, world class architecture dressed for the holidays, the Washington Square Park Christmas tree and the smell of roasting chestnuts.
There have been many storied days across the colorful decades of Astor Place's history, November 1, 2016 was one of those days.
