Village Preservation’s Greek Revival Bicentennial Map

Janes Walk

Led By Village Preservation

This Storymap celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Greek War of Independence, which began on March 25, 1821, and resulted in an independent Greek state in 1830. During this time, architects and builders in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo turned to Ancient Greece — newly representative of ideals of independence and long a symbol of democracy as the world’s first — for inspiration, leading to the ubiquitous Greek Revival style.
