The Architecture of the South Village: A walking tour with Andrew Dolkart

Architectural historian and Columbia University professor Andrew Dolkart will lead a walking tour of the South Village, the 40-block area south of Washington Square Park that GVSHP has recently proposed for landmarking. This area, initially developed in the early 19th century with row houses, later became a neighborhood of immigrant tenements, long home to a vibrant Italian-American community. Based on Dolkart’s recently completed survey of the South Village, the tour will highlight the area’s converted row houses, tenements, theaters, and religious, social, and charitable institutions that vividly reflect the area’s history as a nineteenth and early twentieth century residential neighborhood
