Geography, History

A lovely 1855 schoolhouse in Greenwich Village

I love the historical geography of New York City, and the Ephemeral New York blog is all about it! Here’s a very cool place I would never have discovered on my own: the old Grammar School 47, built in 1855, which incredibly still exists (and is still recognizable) in Greenwich Village. Its history is pretty interesting, so take a look!

  1. Beautiful old building and I hope it is not torn down, the mayor is looking to change landmarking and zoning in favor or developers so they can build modern high rises. We are fighting this tooth and nail. I hope this building is not on the chopping block.
