Bring Home Bob Dylan's Village

photographed by Fred W. McDarrah

In the 1950s and 60s, Greenwich Village teemed with artistic energy, fed by legends like Bob Dylan and scores of others who both shaped and were shaped by the vibrant neighborhood.  These Villagers turned the streets into a living venue for creating, performing, and exchanging ideas and their legacy is still alive today.

With a celebratory spirit and an impeccable eye, Village Voice photographer Fred W. McDarrah (1926 – 2007) chronicled this roiling atmosphere. These ten McDarrah photos depict the exciting Greenwich Village of Bob Dylan and his peers, and beautifully depict the neighborhood in which these legends lived, worked, and played.
