Immigration in Greenwich Village

Janes Walk

Led By Ariel Kates, Village Preservation

Early echoes of today’s debates around immigration can be heard in the Emergency Quota Act of 1921, a piece of legislation that established the nation’s first quota system, drastically reducing the number of immigrants legally allowed to enter the country. In this tour led by historian Lucie Levine, we will celebrate the immigrant history of Greenwich Village, and consider how the legislation shaped our social and architectural history.
