At a Glance

Greenwich Village, once synonymous with Bohemian New York City, was long the epicenter of New York’s gay culture. As early as the 1800s, one of New York’s first gay bars (frequented by Walt Whitman) was located in this neighborhood. Using that as our starting point, we’ll take a nostalgic journey through time to 1969 and the Stonewall Rebellion. Along the way, we’ll consider a number of sites, historical figures and trends that made The Village a mecca for so many generations of LGBTQ+. In the 50 years since Stonewall, queer culture in NYC has largely moved away from Greenwich Village, but before we part, we’ll touch on a few notable exceptions.
