11 landmarks of immigration in Greenwich Village

By Andrew Berman of Village Preservation, Thu, April 18, 2019

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the designation of the Greenwich Village Historic District. One of the city’s oldest and largest landmark districts, it’s a treasure trove of history, culture, and architecture. Village Preservation is spending 2019 marking this anniversary with events, lectures, and new interactive online resources. This is part of a series of posts about the Greenwich Village Historic District marking its golden anniversary.

Each year, immigrant history week is celebrated in late April, commemorating the day in 1907 when more immigrants came through Ellis Island than any other day in history. More than a few of those immigrants came through Greenwich Village, which has a long and storied history of welcoming newcomers from across the city, country, and globe. Here are just a few of the sites within the Greenwich Village Historic District where landmarks of our nation’s rich and varied immigrant history can be found, from the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in the country to a hub of “Little Spain.”

For starters, there’s a mudroom–it’s right across from the laundry room. And an underground garage. There are some bedrooms, maybe four, maybe less–or more…how many do you need? Suburban sprawl isn’t a problem at all when it’s inside your apartment, and the apartment is on a tree-lined West Village block. You could say this $4 million home in a boutique co-op residence at 247 West 12th Street known as Greenwich House rings in at $1 million per bedroom, with some room to spare.
