Details: New York’s first Bohemian neighborhood was Greenwich Village in the 1910s, when everyone from Edna St. Vincent Millay to John Sloan made “the Village” their hangout. It became so hip that by the 1920s the Bohemian era was over, due to rising rents and new luxury apartment buildings—until the next disaffected generation took up the Village’s mantra of non-conformism.

Barry Lewis is an architectural historian who specializes in European and American architecture from the 18th to 20th centuries.
