Greenwich Village in the 1950s

The other night while lying in bed surfing the web I came upon a series of really beautiful photos that I wanted to share with you guys.

They are photos of New York City's Greenwich Village in the 1950s.

These photos are amazing! They really give you a feeling of what it was like to live and play in the Village at that time.

 I love the Village. It has always been a place of artists, musicians, and all sorts of other creative people. It is the epicenter for the LGBT community in NYC.  It's filled with little cafes, restaurants and bars. It really just it a fun place. Everyone is different, so no one really sticks out. Your style is your style. Its a very "to each his own" kind of place. A very liberal place.

Today's post will be short and full of photos. I want to give you a chance to imagine what it would have been like to be apart of a community of such culture and freedom in the 1950s.

ENJOY!!!! Have I ever mentioned how much I adore NYC?!?!?!

  1. These are all so fantastic. My parents are both from Hells Kitchen ( 10th Ave) I love hearing stories from those days. : ) NYC is the greatest city ever!

  2. I love NY, too. I lived in the Village in the 1980's. it was a crazy dangerous time. I loved it. These are beautiful photos. I can't wait for the new Coen bros. film about the Greenwich Village folk scene in the 1960's.

  3. These are great! I love the kitty photo and the nude model too.

  4. Great click into New York life! Fun!

  5. Such wonderful slice-of-urban-life shots! I especially like the one of the barefooted lass sitting on the monument (I'm guessing that's what it). Thank you for sharing these NYC gems with us, dear gal.
