We attended the event, the townhouse was beautiful. Staged as an interactive surreal platform for shoppers (see above), the venue offered an immersive experience plus a coupon for any purchase above $300 USD. The townhouse itself made the visit enjoyable. Located in Greenwich Village at 80 Washington Place, the home has historic significance — John Philip Sousa once resided there. How easy it is to miss this fact! But it’s written on a small plaque which also states the home was built in 1852 and is of the “Greek Revival Style of the period.” In case you forgot (I did), John Philip Sousa was an American composer who wrote the official National March of The United States called “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” You can listen to the official march on YouTube at this link— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mRn9chmRAY. Sousa’s grandparents reportedly fled from Portugal to Spain during the Peninsular War in 1822. His father, John Antonio Sousa, immigrated to the United States, married and had ten children [Source: your island routes.com]. Born in November 1854, John Philip Sousa was John Antonio’s first born son. At the young age of thirteen, he joined the US where he enlisted in the Marine Band [Source: www.immigrantentrepreneurship.org]. The Greenwich village townhouse where he once resided recently underwent a complete interior renovation and placed on the market; an online video reveals many designer upgrades and luxuries.
