Come with us as we travel back in time through the central and southern Village and northern SoHo. From longstanding “mom and pop” eateries to old-fashioned specialty shops, we will journey through the rich history of an exceptional district once frequented by bohemians, artists, and immigrants who made this section of the city their first home in the United States. As we enjoy unique historic streetscapes and taste delicious food specialties, we will explore how, despite rising rents and gentrification, the flavor of this changing neighborhood has survived.

Known as “the Fortress” in its heyday, the massive brick and terra cotta building on the northeast corner of Lafayette and Fourth Streets was built in 1886 as a printing plant to serve the specific requirements of Theodore Low DeVinne, the most illustrious American printer of his generation. In this illustrated lecture, Dr. Irene Tichenor, author of No Art Without Craft: The Life of Theodore Low DeVinne, Printer, will discuss the merit of the building’s exterior design, how the interior was used by the DeVinne Press, and why DeVinne — and what took place inside this building — was important in the history of American printing.
