Celebrating Holidays: Immigrants to Greenwich Village
A Presentation by the NYU Archives & Public History Program Master’s Degree Candidates
So many different ethnic immigrant groups have come to Greenwich Village and the East Village over the years. In many cases, we see them reflected in the architecture and in the place names. Of course each group brought with them language and culture from their place of origin, and many of those have been woven into our cultural fabric as well.
This program will focus on how different immigrant groups celebrated holidays. Three teams of graduate students from the NYU Archives & Public History Program have spent the semester studying and researching this topic, and they will present their findings in this lecture/slideshow.
