Greenwich Village Stories Makes a Perfect Holiday Gift!

GVSHP's book Greenwich Village Stories is a love letter to Greenwich Village and the East Village written by artists, poets, playwrights, musicians, restaurateurs, and other neighborhood habitues who each share a favorite memory of this beloved place.

The sixty-six stories in this collection are original and vivid--perfectly capturing the essence of the neighborhood. Every corner of the Village is represented in the book: recollections of jazz clubs and existentialism on Bleecker Street to rock music on St. Mark's Place and folk singers in Washington Square Park.

Contributors range from Lou Reed to Mario Batali, Karen Finlay to Wynton Marsalis; photographs and illustrations by Berenice Abbott, Allen Ginsberg, Rudy Burckhardt, Saul Leiter, Ruth Orkin, and Weegee, among many others, grace the book.

The book makes a perfect holiday gift. You'll not only delight your friends and family, but support the work of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation with your purchase!
