We here at GVSHP recognize and celebrate these pieces of LGBT history, both as they add to the legacy of the LGBT rights movement and augment the unique character and narrative of the neighborhood and the Greenwich Village Historic District.
Below are a few standout locations, some that are thankfully still with us and still serving the LGBT community and others that may be gone but their memory still remains strong with the community: The Stonewall Inn (51-53 Christopher Street) In the early morning of Saturday, June 28, 1969, dozens of gay men, lesbians, and transgendered people, many of them people of color, resisted a routine police raid on the Stonewall Inn.
It’s no secret that the West Village continues to be an important social setting for LGBT people, but it’s also the site of many important moments in LGBT history and the LGBT rights movement.
While many places are no longer with us, quite a few important ones remain.
GVSHP also got Stonewall landmarked by the City of New York in 2015, the first site ever designated based upon LGBT history, and was part of a broad coalition which got Stonewall named a U. National Monument, the first in the country dedicated to the LGBT rights movement, on June 24, 2016. 10 Located just a block away from the famous Stonewall Inn, Julius’ is often called the oldest continuously operating gay bar in New York City.
It was originally established in 1867 and by the 1950’s was attracting gay patrons.

That meeting took place on March 26, 1973, and eventually led to the founding of PFLAG, which now has 400 chapters nationally and 200,000 members, and provides resources and support to the families of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people, and lobbies for greater understanding and equal treatment of LGBT people. In the 1980’s, it became one of the first institutions to respond to and treat HIV and AIDS.
In 2013 GVSHP partnered with PFLAG and the Church of the Village to place a plaque on the front of the church commemorating the first meeting and founding of PFLAG having taken place there. Housing the first and largest AIDS ward on the east coast, it is often referred to as “ground zero” of the epidemic.
