Marjorie Zien is a Greenwich Village resident and photographer who has spent the last several decades chronicling the life in her neighborhood and city on film. This collection includes photos that she took between 2020 and 2022, a period of intense pressure and protest in our neighborhoods in response to the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, the 2020 election, and various other social issues which came to the fore. Her images poignantly and sharply capture the anger, the grief, the sadness, the resolve, the creativity, care, destruction, and gratitude so prominently on display during that period. Most were shot in or near Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. 

You can also see our Marjorie Zien 9/11 collection, which captures the neighborhood and the city’s response to those tragic events and their aftermath.
