The summer of 2018 is one to remember for Greenwich Village and Astor Place! People danced on the streets. Giant cubes were painted and miniature cities created. Mariachi bands sang and DJ's spun. Restaurants and shops came out, and so did you! From Positively 8th Street to Astor Alive! it has been a summer to remember.
