Photographer Katherine Young's memoir offers an intimate glimpse into Greenwich Village and Beekham Place in the 1930s, an international haven for avant garde artists and thought leaders, known as the Free and Independent Republic of Washington Square. The neighborhood ushered in a cultural rebirth beyond the woes of the Great Depression, attracting the time's finest musicians, writers, painters, and reformers.
