Greenwich Village in the 1930's

New, 2 comments

The present day Greenwich Village has no shortage of high and low restaurant options. During the 1930s, the Greenwich Village had become the center for budding artists, and restaurants from diners to jazz clubs were popping throughout the neighborhood. Mori's Restaurant, which opened in 1884, had become a Greenwich Village destination offering Italian fare. White Tower, a diner chain attempting to ride on the success of the well known White Castle, was built on Greenwich Avenue. None of these establishments remain today, but the pictures offer a glimpse into the past of the still popular neighborhood.
