The Evolution of a Neighborhood: NoHo

Janes Walk

Led By Joan Melnick AND Chandler Forsythe, NoHo BID

Living on Great Jones Street in New York City for the last 51 years aroused a strong curiosity about the architectural history of NoHo & how it evolved over the last two centuries. Significant changes have occurred in this neighborhood and minimal visual documentation is available to express the character of the once lavish and fashionable community.

She visually assembled interpreted plans, elevations, and perspective drawings, tracing its evolution using old prints of drawings, photos, deeds, & texts for reference and compared the neighborhood as it once existed to what is today.

We’re virtually presenting this event on YouTube. We also plan to make an accompanying document of a PDF of the book or Urban Archive, to add depth & an option to bring it outside.

We hope to have closed captioning available for the on-demand video.
