This fall beginning November 1st, the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce and the business along and adjacent to Bleecker Street are hosting their first annual shopping initiative, #ShopBleecker, and offering a walking tour with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation to highlight the neighborhood’s amazing history and encourage patronage within the stores along the street and the surrounding area. Throughout the month, select retailers will be offering special deals and discounts and hosting in-store events. In addition to these events, on November 18th, there will be fun family-friendly activities, sampling opportunities from local restaurants, free exercise classes and giveaways. The goal of this endeavor is to revitalize the neighborhood, generate more foot traffic, and restore Bleecker Street to its historic appeal, reminding everyone that it is still the quintessential area to shop, eat, and play.
