Overview

Since the 1920s, Greenwich Village has captured the imagination of people everywhere. It became the home of artists and writers like Jackson Pollack and Willa Cather. While the bohemian aspect of the Village has often been written about, less well known is that the area around Washington Square was home to Italian-American immigrants and their descendants. This memoir is the story not only of one of those descendants, Carol Bonomo Albright, but also the story of a neighborhood, its food stores and its famous people-artist Ralph Fasanella, Deputy Mayor John Zucotti, and Carmine DeSapio, leader of Tammany Hall in the 1940s and '50s, as well as such trend setters as composer John Cage, all of whom the author knew.
