Pre-colonial[ edit ] A Native American trading station called “Sapohanikan” was on the riverbank, which, accounting for landfill, was located about where Gansevoort Street meets Washington Street today. Before that it was the location of Fort Gansevoort [a] and of the upper extension of Greenwich Village , which had been a vacation spot until overtaken by the northward movement of New York City. The irregular street patterns in the area resulted from the clash of the Greenwich Village street system with that of the Commissioners’ Plan of , which sought to impose a regular grid on the undeveloped part of Manhattan island.
In the western portion of the neighborhood, heavy industry such as iron works and a terra cotta manufacturer could be found, while lighter industry such as carpentry and woodworking, lumber yards, paint works, granite works and a plaster mill blended into the residential area. Since it was no longer considered a desirable area to live in, construction of single-family residences was replaced with the building of multiple-family dwellings, and the continued internal industrialization increased.
In addition an elevated railroad line had been constructed through the neighborhood along Ninth Avenue and Greenwich Street, completed in

Waterton is the main venue of Hammon Falls, a previously published novel of the writing team of Dave Hoing and Roger Hileman and there is a minor tie-in to the former work via a character’s now deceased father. Nineteen-year-old Kasey is, however, far from conventional in a place and era where and when traditional Christian morality and mores have a stranglehold over “decent society.
Although she doesn’t cohabitate, forbidden in her apartment building – and probably by law then – her boyfriend Jack occasionally spends nights with her as the building’s manager turns a blind eye, less out of sympathy, as one gets the impression, than a reluctance to make waves and jeopardize the loss of a paying tenant. Complicating Kasey’s seemingly serious relationship with Jack is her parents’ antipathy towards him bred from a long ago high school feud between the young lovers’ mothers, not to mention rumors of the young man having taken liberties with their daughter’s honor, presumably having led her into a course of ill repute.
The year is Kasey and Jack work in a local grocery store as Jack, having narrowly escaped the WWII draft, attends college in preparation for becoming an economics teacher, an ambition that Kasey finds respectable yet boring as she envisions herself consigned to a lifetime of being a housewife and mother like one of her more conventional two older sisters. The other is also somewhat estranged from their parents over her vocational choice of opening a dance studio, a profession they find less than respectable for a young woman of her background.
Such a fate is most decidedly not to the heretical Kasey’s more exotic tastes. Although a gifted pianist with virtuoso potential, Kasey’s first love is the alto sax, an instrument that features prominently in jazz, a musical genre developed by African-American musicians and still dominated by them. She therefore aspires to join a local black jazz band comprised of middle-aged men or near, which establishes the seemingly preposterous premise of the novel, a young white woman publicly playing with older black musicians in such a segregationist and outright racist era.
This reviewer was most skeptical but read on to gradually have his doubts dispelled as the writers adroitly navigate the pitfalls of what appears to be such an absurd narrative arc. Kasey, responding to a newspaper advertisement, auditions for a jazz band called The Bluenotes, a musical reference to a jazz technique of playing or singing a piece a tad flat for effect, in a black section of town in a club called the New Orleans, but pronounced by all as the “Narlins.
The band is managed by Dwayne Hite, an educated and always impeccably dressed man who has retired as a performer in order to concentrate on his band and composing “charts” musical compositions , often variations of songs he has lifted from other bands, a standard practice within the jazz scene of the era. The band’s booking agent is Freddie Ross who is also its trombonist.

Branding the last unnamed neighborhood in Manhattan. This is not the most picturesque area in the city, nor the most easily romanticized. Instead, it is famously the neighborhood, south of Herald Square, north of Flatiron, and east of Chelsea, that, on the classic New York taxi maps, stood alone as officially nameless. It was simply an unlabeled rectangle. Now close your eyes and picture NoMad. From the street, at night, in a downpour, you might peek through the steamed-up windows of the Ace and get a dreamy glimpse of the people inside, lit by lamplight, perched on armrests, cradling drinks.

Both want the community and police to view each other as allies, not adversaries. Rather than jeopardize her residency status, her abuse went unspoken. Silva said the woman went on to say she and others in such predicaments would welcome a resource like El Puente. Ideally, he said, El Puente can link men or women or families to counseling or shelters or other assistance they need. The need for a discreet sounding board may be greater than ever because the anti-immigrant climate imposes a chilling effect on people volunteering or reporting things, say Salazar and Silva.
Those kinds of incidents, he and Salazar say, diminish trust and discourage some Latinos from expressing their concerns or asserting their rights. They would love to come forward but how are they going to go to the police when you have this immigration enforcement mentality permeating the thought of the immigrant community?
He frees up the police also. Patlan said he and his El Puente compadres each bring something unique to the task: It is a Latino experience of living in this country. Discrimination is not limited to legal status.
