The neighborhood South of Union Square played a critical and outsized role in the development of 20th century American art. From the social realist Fourteenth Street School of the 1930s to the abstract expressionists of the New York School after World War II, the neighborhood produced and witnessed profound changes in the course of art history. This walking tour will showcase the homes, studios, and important institutions related to these movements.
