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.

Well before 1929, Stalin had achieved dictatorial power over the Soviet empire, but now he decided that the largest peasant economy in the world would be transformed into socialist modernity, whatever it took. What it took, and what Stalin managed to force through, transformed the country and its ruler in profound and enduring ways. Rather than a tale of a deformed or paranoid personality creating a political system, this is a story of a political system shaping a personality. Building and running a dictatorship, with power of life or death over hundreds of millions, in conditions of capitalist self-encirclement, made Stalin the person he became.

The idea that women become raving lunatics when their hormones fluctuate is firmly entrenched in American culture—images of hormone-crazed women are prominent on TV and in movies, books, and magazines—but a thorough examination of the evidence overwhelmingly tells us otherwise. This book will confront the pervasive myth that women are at the mercy of their reproductive hormones, and illustrate how the perpetuation of this stereotype harms women.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Program: Leonard Bernstein: I Hate Music!: A Cycle of Five Kids Songs (1943). Sonata for Clarinet and Piano (1941-42). The Library teams up with The New York Philharmonic Archives and Music from Copland House to present a sonic portrait of Leonard Bernstein’s spirited first years in New York City. In 1940, after graduating from Harvard and the Curtis Institute of Music, Bernstein moved to Manhattan, where he hung around with Stella Adler and Marlon Brando, and accompanied Judy Holiday in Greenwich Village night clubs. By 1943, he was conducting The New York Philharmonic. Just one year later he had created the Broadway sensation On the Town with Jerome Robbins, Adolph Green, and Betty Comden. This is a multifaceted celebration of young talent in an exhilarating city. Follow Bernstein’s hand marked conductor’s score, while listening to an archival recording of his Philharmonic debut; hear recitations of Bernstein letters and diaries, plus Comden and Green comedy sketches; and enjoy live performances.

Martha Redbone fuses Native American soul, Piedmont blues, and Appalachian folk to create a stirring and unique style of music. Memories of growing up in Clinch Mountain, Virginia, and Harlan County, Kentucky—where she embraced her Cherokee and Choctaw roots—inspired “Americana’s next superstar” (The Village Voice). Her soulful vocals have drawn listeners to the heart of American roots music, and inspired Living Colour’s legendary guitarist Vernon Reid to exclaim, “Martha’s voice itself is the sound of the dreams of hills and rivers.”
