Conceived & Led by Sarah Schulman, Todd Shalom & Niegel Smith
Presented by Elastic City & co-presented with Brooklyn Museum as part of the “Crossing Brooklyn” exhibition.

The beauty, class mix and historical depth of the West Village once inspired and produced political and artistic ideas for the world. Now it is defined by excess, simulacra and homogenization. Favorites by Sarah Schulman, Todd Shalom and Niegel Smith will engage participants in the generational class-clash in the West Village, uncovering, contrasting and performing its past and present. The walk will be enhanced by the memories and current realities of queer tenants, who will reveal their favorite places that are gone and their favorite places that remain.

Storytellers: Jim Fouratt, Mark McPherson and Sur Rodney (Sur)
