GVSHP and Greenwich Village Stories on PBS' MetroFocus
GVSHP and our new book, Greenwich Village Stories: A Collection of Memories, will be featured on this week's MetroFocus on PBS with host Rafael Pi Roman. Greenwich Village Stories is a love letter to Greenwich Village written by sixty-six artists, poets, playwrights, musicians, restaurateurs, and other neighborhood habitués, from Lou Reed to Andrew Solomon, Patricia Clarkson to Penny Arcade, who each share a favorite memory of this beloved place, illustrated with paintings and photographs by Milton Avery, Saul Leiter, Berenice Abbott, and Wegee, among many others. Read more about Greenwich Village Stories or purchase a copy here -- all proceeds support the education and advocacy work of GVSHP.
We're honored to be featured on MetroFocus, a multi-platform news magazine focusing on culture, government and politics, the economy, urban development and other news in the New York region.
