Bohemian Melting Pot: The South Village
A Walking Tour with Andrew Berman

Visit this historic yet unprotected link to New York’s immigrant and bohemian past. Largely surrounded by designated historic districts, the South Village includes a vast array of tenements of nearly every style and type, prominent religious structures and social institutions.

Although some alterations have occurred, the neighborhood remains a vital link to New York’s immigrant past and to its artistic and countercultural avant garde from the 1890s to the 1960s. Hear about the current efforts to gain historic district status for the area and how the designation process works.
