About this title


Treating New York's bohemian enclave, Greenwich Village, as an urban microcosm, the 22 essays in this volume explore its architecture and art, cultural dimensions, political life, and peoples. The editors bring together both astute commentators on American life and culture and a rich collection of visual images from the Museum of the City of New York. 129 illustrations.

From Publishers Weekly:

Everything you ever wanted to know about Manhattan's Greenwich Village is contained in this remarkable look at arguably America's last true bohemian outpost. Edited by Beard, executive director of the Atlanta Historical Society, and Berlowitz, director of the Humanities Council, New York University, this work evolved from a series of public lectures co-sponsored by the Museum of the City of New York and NYU's Humanities Council in 1990-91 and presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Within Bohemia's Borders: Greenwich Village, 1830-1930." Written by various scholars, the essays focus on such diverse aspects of Village lore as: archeological digs on Greenwich Street; a history of Christopher Street; the importance of the Seventh and Sixth Avenue subway lines that helped "open up" the Village to the outside; the black community, which has been a major part of Village life since the 17th century; the contributions of other ethnic groups such as the Italians, Germans and Irish; Village writers and artists; the Beat Generation; architecture and the history and importance of Washington Square. Containing 149 black-and-white rare and interesting illustrations, this volume is an excellent source for the Villager, the historian, the tourist.
