"Greene Street: A Long History of a Short Block" is a study of the historic development of the 486-feet strip of pavement, today known as Greene Street, between Houston and Prince Streets in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan, New York. Today, the block is one of the richest in the city and the world.
Our project includes an interactive documentary website that allows users to trace the development trajectory of Greene Street over four centuries. The site includes a timeline interface for exploring Greene Street's history, an interactive "Then & Now" section for users to compare pictures/video of the block from as far back as 1933 to present day, a detailed map section, and an online version of the data used for analysis in the site and the paper.
