For over a half-century, the East Village has been the locus of bohemian and avant-garde culture in New York City. This illustrated map spotlights the writers, artists, musicians, actors, entrepreneurs and political leaders who have helped define new directions in American fine arts and popular culture. Featuring caricature portraits and accurate renderings of buildings and streets, this pictorial map makes for an entertaining and educational poster. The back of the map provides addresses and an easy-to-use walking tour of the neighborhood.

The East Village Map is much more than an attractive wall poster. It also contains a well-researched walking-tour guide to the neighborhood's historic sites. The itinerary includes sixty-eight of the East Village's most interesting spots; each briefly described, and clearly located on a secondary map specifically designed for those visiting the area. The walking-tour guide is printed on the back of folded East Village maps. Unfolded posters and framed maps come with a separate four-page booklet containing the walking-tour information.
