From Caffe Reggio–the place that claims to have brought the cappuccino to America–to Minetta Tavern, MacDougal Street plays host to its fair share of historic institutions. It has also been home to a series of the city’s most notable residences. Eleanor Roosevelt called the street home following the death of her husband, and Jackson Pollock lived on the private MacDougal Alley. The street lies at the heart of Greenwich Village, with the lifeblood of the neighborhood ever present on this dense strip. The charm and allure of MacDougal Street today is a maintenance of the storefronts of the latter half of the 20th century. Perhaps due in major part to the 1969 Greenwich Village Historic District Designationof the area, the street, as with much of Greenwich Village, has remained an intact homage to the artistic life and literary history of the neighborhood.
