And this was also the reason for the area becoming attractive to free-thinkers, tourists, bohemians and artists. Complete with maps, illustrations and walking tours of the Village, Terry Miller's "Greenwich Village and How It Got that Way" reveals the extraordinary history and the historic people who made the place their homes. Artists Jackson Pollack and Edward Hopper, poets Edna St. Vincent Millay and Walt Whitman, playwright Eugene O'Neill, and novelist Willa Cather, are just a few of the famous names who lived and created work here, as they created something uniquely American.
"Greenwich Village and How It Got That Way" is a great book for people who will visit the village, and is great for New Yorkers, themselves, to learn about this neighborhood that they thought they knew so well.
Rocco Dormarunno, author of The Five Points
For anyone who wants/needs to know
