Civil Rights and Social Justice Map
Gets Praise and Attention

In just the week since GVSHP launched our new Civil Rights and Social Justice Map, it’s received nearly 30,000 views and favorable coverage in BrickUndergroundCurbed6sqftViewing NYC and The Architect’s Newspaper, among others. 
 Unsurprisingly, now more than ever there seems to be a thirst for protecting and celebrating our great strides in the areas of civil rights and social justice.  And few neighborhoods have made greater contributions to those causes than Greenwich Village, the East Village and NoHo.

If you haven’t already, explore the map to find out some of the amazing ways in which our neighborhoods are connected to the struggle for civil rights and social justice for immigrants, African-Americans, women, Latino/as, and the LGBT community.  We all know about Stonewall and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire (both featured prominently on the map).  But did you know where Louisa May Alcott wrote, where many of the greatest Puerto Rican artists and poets of the past generation launched their careers, where James Baldwin lived and wrote, and where abolitionists were inspired?  Find out about them all and so much more on our Civil rights and Social Justice Map here.

Want more?  Check out these other recently-released GVSHP resources:  our map of Bob Dylan’s Greenwich Village, and our first of its kind report documenting all landmarks-approved new buildings in the Greenwich Village Historic District.
