Daytonian in Manhattan: Favorite Places in Greenwich Village
A slideshow and lecture by historian and blogger Tom Miller
In the first decades of the 20th century, Greenwich Village became Manhattan’s Bohemia. Musicians, poets, writers and artists flocked to its winding, charismatic streets. As artists’ studios appeared on the upper stories of buildings and houses, cafés, coffee shops, and taverns sprouted in the lower levels, often below ground. Greenwich Village’s dimly-lit night spots were picturesque, sometimes scandalous, and always colorful.
Tom Miller takes us through a tour of a few of the Village’s most vibrant bistros of the early 1900s—including one of the city’s first lesbian clubs, a four-story jazz joint, and popular speakeasy.
