In the sequel to his popular program on Greenwich Village, Barry Lewis returns, in conjunction with the exhibition Swing Time, to discuss the evolution of the Village in the 1930s. How did the Village change as New York and the nation moved from the carefree era of the ’20s to the more sobering decade of the ’30s?


Barry Lewis is an architectural historian and host of a popular series of walking tours on PBS.
