Covers many things

Good doc that covers many things about the history of the culture of Greenwich Village.
I did the short animation of the Stonewall Riots in this. Nice to see it all again.

Scorsese's Dylan documentaries cover more of the Greenwich scene in the 60s than this

What a great surprise! Loved this
While looking for something else in Amazon Prime movies I discovered this little gem. It was made in 2005 so the screen aspect is 4:3 not wide screen. And - sadly - many of the interviewees are gone - Maya Angelou, Norman Mailer, and Mary Travers to name a few. If you want to understand how The Village developed BEFORE NYU started tearing down buildings and making the Village "upscale", this 70 minute film will mean a lot. Great stories from those who lived there.
