Greenwich Village: Washington Square Park ... - Secret World

When Edward Hopper was 31 years old, he moved into the small Greenwich Village space where he would both work and live until his death, at age 84. With a skylight providing the rich natural light he adored and both a roof and window looking out onto Washington Square Park, the setting was ideal for both his work and that of his wife, the painter Jo Hopper, who worked alongside him. While the building, part of a row of 13 Greek Revival homes lining Washington Square Park North, has since been acquired by New York University, the top-floor studio remains much as it was. Overseen by the NYU School of Social Work, whose offices occupy the rest of the building, it is available for view by appointment.
