NYC:Manhattan hoods-Greenwich Village

Resuming the neighborhood tours brings us into the hood known as Greenwich Village. It goes from Houston to 14th Sts between Sixth Ave (Ave of the Americas) and Broadway. This hood is both commercial and residential. It was in 1712, that Greenwich Village was founded, and it was originally not part of NYC, which was on the lower tip of Manhattan at the time. George Washington lived at 2 5th Ave durring his stay in Manhattan. Houses that were federal, Italianate, and Greek Revival dominated the area. In 1822, Greenwich Village became home to numerous people who fleeing from yellow fever. In 1833, NYU purchased land east of the cemetary to avoid the noise of its original location. In 1853, the Salmagundi Club was founded as a center for artists. The 6th Ave El brought even more people to the area when it was errected durrign the late 1800's. In 1871, Washington Sq was created from the former cemetary that was there before after digging out the graves. Washington Arch became the centerpiece of the park as it does right now. In 1911, numerous immigrant workers were killed in the Triangle Shirt Wast Factory in the Brown Bldg, though the building was rebuilt after it occured and the victims were burried in Mt Zion Cemetery in Queens. The el was demolished in 1928 to be replaced with the IND line of the subway that would run on that same avenue. At the same time, bohemians came to Greenwich Village and opened up numerous clubs like the Blue Note as a center for jazz. Greenwich Village became a center for political rebellion later on, and Marchel Dunchamp demanded for the area to secede from the city. Nevertheless, boheamians returned again, but this time with rock and roll. Hippies found this area to be their homes as did gays. Most of the people who came to live here in the 1960's still live here today. Except for some places, Greenwich Village is still historically preserved. NYU is considered one of the most prestigous colleges in the city as well as the nation. You can get here by taking the PATH train to either 9th or 14th Sts, or by taking the subway to W 4th St-Washington Sq (A, C, E, F, V, S), 14th St (F, L, V), or 8th St-NYU (N, R, W). Here is what you will find in Greenwich Village.

I apologize to those who had to wait a while for all these pics to come up, though Greenwich Village is one of Manhattan's most prime neighborhoods.

I'm glad I have a cable modem.
Sheez! This thread should win an award for most pics in one thread.
