Time for Summer!

There’s no better place to enjoy summer than the East Village, Greenwich Village, and NoHo! There is something for everyone, including amazing local ice cream, live music, community gardens and even bird watching — all captured for posterity in our historic image archive.

And of course our Historic Image Archive has plenty of examples of summers past… see them all here or purchase your favorite print.
