In conjunction with New-York Historical’s exhibition Hotbed, architectural historian Barry Lewis takes us inside the vibrant political and artistic scene of Greenwich Village—New York’s first Bohemian neighborhood—in the early 20th century, when everyone from Edna St. Vincent Millay to John Sloan made “the Village” their hangout.

Barry Lewis, an architectural historian who teaches at Cooper Union Forum, is the former co-host of a popular walking tour series on PBS.
