A Brief History of East 10th St. at Tompkins Square Park

New, 1 comment

Take a look at the history of the buildings on East 10th Street along Tompkins Square Park. The Landmarks Preservation Commission will vote to determine the future of the street Tuesday. Andrew Berman of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation illustrates the evolution of tenement structures, a building where Margaret Sanger tried to open a birth control clinic and was thwarted, and one of the first Carnegie libraries in NYC.
