Virtual Tour: Historic Tour of NYU’s Greenwich Village ‘Campus’


Stairwell inside the Washington Square Park archView from the Washington Square Park Arch

Think that NYU doesn't have a campus? Join NYU Professor Karen Karbiener on a stroll around its Washington Square neighborhood and learn more about its history, architecture, and the (in)famous people associated with the university.  We'll discuss the legends of the denizens of NYU's first building on the Park (where one of the first photographs in America was taken in 1839), its more recent associations with the LGBTQ+ movement, and plans both fulfilled and foiled-- including the university's move up to and back down from the Bronx, Philip Johnson's master campus plan and NYU Law School's attempt to preserve Edgar Allen Poe's house on West 3rd Street-- during its 190 year history.
