with Betsy Polivy, Integral Yoga, and Down the Hatch
In 2011, Betsy Polivy had a crazy idea to walk the entire original Manhattan street grid sideways, from 1st Street to 155th Street. She traversed the side streets from the East River to the Hudson, documenting, meeting, and listening. In 2020 Besty published the book Walking Manhattan Sideways, and building on that success, she followed up with The Art of Walking Manhattan Sideways: Hidden Gems on the Side Streets – forthcoming in fall 2021 – to celebrate dance, museums, music, and theater, while also drawing attention to more scrumptious restaurants, splendid neighborhood bars, and one-of-a-kind shops. Join us and Betsy to pay tribute to the side streets.
Celebrating this publication, Betsy will join us, along with two Greenwich Village small business owners featured in her book: Mitchell Banchik owner of the bar Down the Hatch, which is celebrating 30 years on West 4th Street, and Chandra Sgammato, the director of Integral Yoga, which teaches simple practices that are profound on West 13th Street.
