Reconceiving the Historic Enclaves of Greenwich Village:
A Lecture with Architectural Historian Andrew Dolkart
The small residential enclaves that dot Greenwich Village are one of the features that give the neighborhood its special character. Most of these enclaves were run-down and neglected by the early 20th century, only to be rehabilitated in the 1910s and 20s as part of the general transformation of the Village into an artistic, middle-class area. In this talk, Andrew Dolkart will discuss the creation of such notable enclaves as Grove Court, Washington Mews, MacDougal-Sullivan Gardens, and Patchin Place, all of which he writes about in his recent book, The Row House Reborn: Architecture and Neighborhoods in New York City 1908-1929, which will be available for purchase at the event.
