Greenwich Street

Greenwich Street is a north-south street in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It extends from the intersection of Ninth Avenue and Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District at its northernmost end to its southern end at Battery Park, interrupted between Vesey and Liberty Streets by the World Trade Center site. As the World Trade Center site is redeveloped, the street will be reconnected. It is sometimes confused with the similarly named Greenwich Avenue.

Main east-west streets crossed include (from north to south) Christopher Street, Houston Street, Canal Street and Chambers Street. Greenwich Street travels through a number of neighborhoods, including the Meatpacking District, the West Village, Hudson Square and TriBeCa. North of Spring Street, traffic travels north on Greenwich Street; south of Spring Street, it travels south.

Famous quotes containing the words greenwich and/or street:

    Strange now to think of you, gone without corsets and eyes while I
    walk on the sunny pavement of Greenwich Village.
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    If I should go out of church whenever I hear a false statement I could never stay there five minutes. But why come out? The street is as false as the church, and when I get to my house, or to my manners, or to my speech, I have not got away from the lie.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
