Village Alliance


As a 501(c)3 non-profit Business Improvement District covering 44 blocks of central Greenwich Village, the Village Alliance works with area property owners, businesses, residents, cultural and academic institutions to ensure the district continues to grow and succeed. Our mission is to enhance the neighborhood’s quality-of-life by creating a cleaner, safer, greener and more enjoyable environment for all who live in, work in and visit Greenwich Village.


Among the programs we provide our constituents are supplemental public safety and sanitation services, graffiti removal, landscaping and beautification, economic development and community revitalization initiatives, business marketing and promotions, streetscape enhancements, public art, tourist information and free walking tours.
