Taking a look at Greenwich Village's past and present

Greenwich Village, also referred to as just “The Village”, is a largely residential part of Manhattan, and was once known as a mecca for artists and writers like Bob Dylan and Jack Kerouac. Though surges in rent have sent many starving artists to other neighborhoods, bohemian culture continues to pervade the coffee shops, bars and bookstores of this historic district.

On this week's Cityscape, we're exploring the quaint Manhattan neighborhood known as Greenwich Village. Our guests include Andrew Berman, the Executive Director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and Lorna Graham, the author of a new book called The Ghost of Greenwich Village.
