Welcome to Greenwich Village

Who We Are

The Village Alliance has been a leading advocate for the Greenwich Village community for thirty years. As a Business Improvement District, the Alliance works with area residents, businesses, cultural and academic institutions to ensure the district continues to grow and succeed. Our mission is to create a cleaner, greener, attractive and more enjoyable Greenwich Village neighborhood for all people.

We believe that neighborhoods are vital when they are open, diverse and inclusive. We make our neighborhood cleaner through supplemental sanitation services and graffiti removal; we make it greener and more attractive through landscaping, streetscape enhancements and public art; we make it more vibrant and enjoyable for all people through community events, business marketing and promotions; we make it a safe space for everyone through public safety and hospitality services.

Our District

The 44 blocks of the Village Alliance Business Improvement District represent a diverse cross-section of the Village neighborhood. The district centers on 8th Street between Second and Sixth Avenues, and covers neighboring blocks along Sixth Avenue (W. 4th to W 13th St.), University Place (E. 8th to E. 13th St), Broadway (Waverly Pl. to E. 10th St.) and Astor Place. The area has been a pivotal spot in American history and popular culture.

The area shaded in red on the map below represents the Village Alliance District Service Area.
