Histories of 4th Street from East to West: A Presentation by the NYU Archives & Public History Program Master’s Degree Candidates

4th Street runs from Avenue D in the East Village, across the island of Manhattan, changing from “East 4th” to “West 4th” at Broadway. It continues on to 6th Avenue, where it changes direction on a hard angle and runs through the West Village to 13th Street, near the Meatpacking District. Greenwich Village is known for its defiance of the numeric street grid, and is the place where West 4th Street crosses West 12th Street.

Three teams of graduate students from the NYU Archives & Public History Program have spent the semester studying and researching three particular sections of 4th Street. They have analyzed census reports, building permits, and many other resources, and will present their findings in this lecture/slideshow.
