Jane's Walk 2023: New Schools: Radical Educational Institutions in Greenwich Village
05/05/2023 06:00 PM - 06:45 PM ET


  • Free


Greenwich Village is home to some of the first public educational institutions in New York City, from the city's first free circulating library to the People’s Institute, open to "whatsoever things are true." The Village’s pedigree as a bastion of free expression has its roots in these institutions, which were at the center of some of the great radical and progressive movements of the 19th and 20th centuries. On this tour, we’ll drop by The New School and discuss how opposition to World War I (and to stodgy uptown academia) inspired its creation. We will also visit the first law school in New York City to admit women, an anarchist educational collective on St. Marks Place, and other historic sites.
