Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month in Greenwich Village

Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month in Greenwich Village

National Hispanic Heritage Month begins Tuesday, September 15th and runs through Thursday, October 15th. This month is designated as a time to celebrate “the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America,” according to the Library of Congress. This is an especially exciting time for New York City, whose Hispanic and Latinx communities have helped shape the city’s history since the beginning of the colonial era.
