Brief History Of The Origins Of New York City Cultural Centers

east village neighborhood things to do east villageThe Village, as it is known today, was a potter's field in the 1600's, meaning it was a place where the unknown were buried. In the 1700's it was farmland with some homes in what is currently the West Village and where the oldest surviing home still stands. Around the turn into the 1800's, the area was becoming more populated and the city purchased the area that is now Washington Square Park and used it for militia exercises and parades.

After the Erie Canal opened, New York became a commercial hub and grew quickly. Tompkins Square in the East Village was given to the city by one of Peter Stuyvesant's heirs. And Union Square Park, which many associate with the Village even though technically it's a part of Midtown, began to be used for public rallies.

There's a pretty full history section in the West & East Village Neighborhood section which we put together using a combination of many different sources, including those still present in the neighborhood.
