Tompkins Square North:
Anatomy of an East Village Block
A Presentation by the NYU Public History & Archives Class

Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful blocks in the East Village, East 10th Street between Avenues A and B along the north side of Tompkins Square Park retains a wealth of architectural detail that has changed little since its original construction in the mid-19th century. In conjunction with Village Preservation’s architectural resource survey of the East Village, students in the Introduction to Public History course in NYU’s Public History and Archives Program will present their semester-long research about the people who called this neighborhood home. Looking at three distinct time periods, from 1860-1890, 1900-1930, and post-1930, the students will discuss how they went about their research and present their findings
