Evan Pritchard, author of 'Native New Yorkers: The Legacy of the Algonquin People of New York,' will take us on a journey through the history of Greenwich Village streets and plazas through Native American eyes to see how the indigenous history influences our city streetscapes and public spaces today. Drawing upon archeology, linguistics, and oral and written histories, this walk will link the legacy of the Lenape with luxury and Lincoln.

This program is sponsored by The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, The Village Alliance, and the Neighborhood Preservation Center.
