BLOCKS NYC

We are very excited to announce our second annual BLOCKS NYC. We are very happy to be working with The Village Alliance in Greenwich Village as well as our exhibition partner, Lomography.

Due to the area’s affordable housing and influx of immigrants since the early 1900’s, Greenwich Village has housed and sheltered many free thinkers.  It’s cafes, bars and restaurants, became a platform for some of the greatest philosophers, writers, musicians and artists that helped to shape contemporary culture.

EVENT BACKGROUND   After a successful first event in the fall of 2013, this will mark the second year for BLOCKS NYC, an annual event celebrating the music, history and architecture of New York’s Greenwich Village. Due to the area’s affordable housing and influx of immigrants since the early 1900’s, Greenwich Village has housed and sheltered many free thinkers.  It’s cafes, bars and restaurants, became a platform for some of the greatest philosophers, writers, musicians and artists that helped to shape contemporary culture.   This October CBCC will explore the rich and colorful history of the Village once again to the soundtrack of a vastly changing generational music of the 60s.
