This playhouse which opened on November 15, 1917 on Sheridan Square where Christopher Street, Fourth Street, and Seventh Avenue meet, was designed by Herman Lee Meader in a Dutch Colonial style. Actor Frank Conroy, who was integral in its development, ran the theatre at opening.

By 1921 The Greenwich started showing films between play engagements and by 1928 was hosting more films than live shows. In 1930 it was demolished for an apartment complex that itself has since been replaced.

On further review, the caption says this particular theater was razed in 1930. A NYT article on the same date says the theater in questions was at Greenwich Avenue and Twelfth Street.
