Author Laurie Lewis will present “The Pioneers of Greenwich Village,” a lecture based upon her book “New York City Firsts: Big Apple Innovations That Changed the Nation and the World.” Lewis researched the many New Yorkers responsible for pioneering discoveries, inventions, breakthroughs, and innovations in the arts, engineering, commerce, food, government, civil rights and social justice, music, religion, sports, and many other areas. For this lecture, she’ll focus on the many Greenwich Village residents found on that list and their incredible innovations that changed the landscapes of our lives. Get ready to hear more detail about old familiar names and explore new ones as you learn about how the world was changed from our doorstep.
