Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Alison Bechdel is the acclaimed author of the comics memoirs Fun Home and Are You My Mother? Prior to these, she gained a devoted audience for her biweekly comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, published in alternative newspapers between 1983 and 2009. Bechdel was inspired to write about queer life by Gay Comix, edited by Howard Cruse between 1980 and 1983. Cruse began publishing in the underground comix scene in the 1970s and went on to draw the comics series Wendel for The Advocate through the ’80s. In 1995 he published his award-winning graphic novel Stuck Rubber Baby. We are delighted to present a very special conversation between these two influential artists, moderated by Hillary Chute (author of Graphic Women and the new interview collection Outside the Box).

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem. Travel and Leisure named it one of America's top 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, and its beauty is rivaled only by its place in American history. These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.
