8. 2 Cornelia St, Manhattan, former Varitype Building
This corner structure located between Cornelia Street and Sixth Ave, with its “point” meeting Fourth Street, is the former “Varitype Building.” The Green Village Society for Historic Preservation(GVSHP) said it was constructed in 1907 as commercial business space—its history included a variety of publishing, manufacturing and printing residents—but was converted to residential apartments in 1982. It was also known as an artist haven, as John Sloan had a studio within the building from 1912 to 1915 and featured it in his painting “The City from Greenwich Village.”
An iconic location of Papaya Dog has long been on the ground floor, not to be confused with Papaya King.
