West Village Committee v1
West Village Committee v2
When 14 blocks, between Hudson Street and the Hudson River, were designated as a slum to be replaced with new towers in a pricey “urban renewal” scheme, Jane Jacobs, then living on Hudson Street and writing about architectural issues, joined with neighbors, as the Committee to Save the West Village, to defeat the designation and, through brilliant tactics, succeeded. They immediately re-formed themselves as the West Village Committee, in 1962, to propose infill housing on the site of a disused rail line in that area (the lower part of the High Line), without displacing any residents, commercial or private.


Jefferson Market Garden
The Jefferson Market Garden is bounded by Greenwich Avenue, West 10th Street and Sixth Avenue. Walking through historic Greenwich Village your eye will catch a beautiful garden nestled in one of the busiest corners of the city next to one of our most renown landmark buildings, the Jefferson Market Library. Open to the public from spring to fall, the garden is resplendent with glorious blooms throughout the seasons.


Vasco Project
Donald Fels has been making art about trade around the world since 1990. Having spent years looking into issues to do with global trade, Fels felt compelled to examine its roots. In 2002 he began researching da Gama’s legacy. In 2003 he participated in an exploratory artist residency in Kerala, called Malabar when da Gama landed there. The experience proved pivotal. Fels worked with local signpainters in Trviandrum to portray issues put into play by da Gama’s arrival on the Malabar Coast.
