The 48th annual Pride March yesterday passed through Greenwich Village, electrifying our streets with vibrant color, pulsating music, performance, and costume.
Rather than the humdrum of traffic, you'll hear beautiful poetry next time you're at the Ruth Wittenburg Triangle. We've installed a Poetry Jukebox which plays twenty poems featuring Jane Jacobs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac among others.
The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.
Greenwich Village’s favorite street festival, Positively 8th Street, returned on June 9 for the first of three summer Saturdays celebrating the creative and musical heritage of West 8th Street and Greenwich Village.
The 25th Annual Meeting of the Village Alliance took place on June12th at St. John’s University Manhattan Campus, in the spectacular, award winning 101 Astor Place building designed by Fumihiko Maki.
Congratulations to Chloe Vichot, founder of Ancolie on West 8th Street, who was last night awarded the 2018 Norman Buchbinder award, at the Village Alliance Annual Meeting.
