THE FLAMBOYANT AND THE BOHEMIAN — GREENWICH VILLAGE AND HOW IT

In its earliest years Greenwich Village was a refuge from the yellow fever epidemic downtown. By the early 20th century, the Village had become home to artists, writers, and playwrights looking for an unconventional environment and creative freedom. Protesters came here in their struggles for the vote for women, better working conditions, opposition to war, and gay and feminist rights. Highlights include:

  • The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and the labor movement
  • Literary figures — Henry James, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Willa Cather, Eugene O’Neill
  • 19th century residential architectural as a social document
  • Coffeehouses of the Beat Generation
  • The Minetta trout stream and street design
