The Village Voice was launched in 1955 by Ed Fancher, Dan Wolf, John Wilcock, and Norman Mailer. It quickly marked itself for its groundbreaking investigative journalism and local reporting. Since its founding the publication has won 3 Pulitzer Prizes and published articles from many well-known writers like Ezra Pound, e.e. cummings, and Henry Miller. Though the publication’s offices have moved several times, including to their recent location in the Financial District, it got its start in the Village and its name still adorns this building.
