Carriage House at Waverly Place is an elegant statement venue in the heart of Greenwich Village. Constructed in 1826, the Carriage House was the former residence of notable playwright Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin in the Sun) and a hub for artists and thought leaders in the 1960’s, including Nina Simone, James Baldwin, Lena Horne, and Harry Belafonte. Later in the 1990’s, it was the home of Kate Moss and then fiancé Johnny Depp.
