Village Scenes: A March of Snow and Sunshine

The rectory of St. Mark’s Church in the snow.

After a long, cold, and snowy January and February, Mother Nature decided we weren’t quite ready for spring just because our calendars told us it was March. Only a few days into the month, the city was covered in snow. While we weren’t exactly thrilled, we couldn’t help but notice how pretty the neighborhood looked.

But if you’re tired of looking at snow photos, keep on scrolling through the post to see signs of warmer days that bathed us in sunshine just days after the snowfall. March has definitely been showing us all sides of the weather and we’re only halfway through it.

All photos in this post were taken by Amanda Davis, GVSHP’s Director of Preservation and Research. Be sure to like us on Facebook to see more of our favorite Village scenes!

As it happened, we turned our clocks ahead one hour and the temperatures became much  more spring-like.

Have you ever gazed up at some of our beautiful historic fire escapes? This particular photo was taken in the South Village Historic District.

Sitting in Father Demo Square with a view of this beautiful old church is a good day indeed. Located within the Greenwich Village Historic District Extension II (South Village), you can read more about its history and importance to the Italian and Italian-American community on our Resources page.

And to cap it all off, perhaps nothing says a beautiful sunny day better than hanging out in Washington Square Park.
