We’ve just added twenty-five new entries to tours on our Greenwich Village Historic District 50th Anniversary Map and six new entries to our Civil Rights and Social Justice Map covering Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. The former now has nearly 1,000 sites connected to the history and culture of Greenwich Village, while the latter has over 200 locations where significant events in Civil Rights and Social Justice history took place in our neighborhoods or where significant figures connected to that history lived – explore them here and here.

Additions to the maps include the sites used in the film and play “Barefoot In the Park” on our tour of Film, TV, and Play Locations; the homes of first female presidential cabinet member Frances Perkins and social justice crusader Rose Pastor Stokes; artist J. Alden Weir’s house; a ‘safe house’ during the deadly Draft Riots of 1863 and the home of an abolitionist and Founding Father-scion who defended fugitive slaves in court and the homes of fellow abolitionists during NYC’s anti-Abolitionist Riots of 1834; the church of a Catholic priest who dedicated his life to opening the church to African Americans and who helped found the first Black Catholic church in the North; the home of a founder of the ACLU and the headquarters of the leading crusaders for women’s suffrage in NY in the late 19th century; and many more.

Our Greenwich Village Historic District 50th Anniversary Map and our Civil Rights and Social Justice Map are designed to highlight the amazing history and culture connected to our neighborhoods, and perpetuate the memory of some of the critical figures and events rooted in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. Share them with friends, and if we missed a site, let us know!
