Historic Plaque Unveiling Thursday, October 6 at 5:30 pm Honoring Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and the Beats — RSVP Today

Please join us next Thursday, October 6 at 5:30 pm for the unveiling of our 21st historic plaque marking historic sites in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. Our latest will be at 204-206 East 7th Street (between Avenues B and C), which was home early in their careers to both Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs, where they also often hosted (and famously photographed) Jack Kerouac.

We’ll be joined at the unveiling by some amazing speakers, including downtown poet Bob Holman, Ginsberg memoirist and playwright Bob Rosenthal, and filmmaker and culture critic Regina Weinreich, who’ll speak to the significance of this site, its residents, and the Beat movement. 

Learn more about our historic plaque program, honoring figures from James Baldwin to Jane Jacobs, Jean-Michel Basquiat to Elizabeth Blackwell, here.
