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.

Lecture |
In addressing the timely issue of China's urban poor policy, Dr. Dorothy Solinger will pose the question: why are the poor in Chinese cities managed so much more meagerly, in relative terms, than other groups? Using statistical material, comparative information and quotations from interviews, she will make the case that the state’s obsession with forging stability has had a negative impact on China’s municipally-situated needy. Chinese cities must now conform to the political elite's vision of modernity, to what Dr. Solinger sees as its illusions of rejuvenation, regeneration, and renovation.

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 When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.
