Coffee in the Village, NYC
A scene in Greenwich Village at an outdoor cafe. My husband and I used to haunt all the cafes in Greenwich Village. I have very fond memories of them, relaxing on summer days. And in the indoor ones on winter days and evenings. There was no place like it.
Excerpts from The Bowery Boys, New York City History, written in April, 2019 by Greg Young:
This April marks the 50th anniversary of the Greenwich Village Historic District designation from 1969 — preserving one of the most important and historic neighborhoods in New York.
The Village is the stuff of legends: a hotbed of musicians, artists, performers, intellectuals, activists. In the 1950s, people often defined Greenwich Village as a literal village with a small-town atmosphere.
Nobody was saying that about the Village in the 1960s. In just a few short years, the neighborhood’s community of artists and creators had helped to define American culture. The Village was world famous.
