July 9, 2013
The Marietta Times

I recently heard a lecture on Book TV by the author of a new book about the history of Greenwich Village, New York. The author pointed out that in spite of its history as a center for the arts and culture, Greenwich Village no longer is a haven for struggling artists, because skyrocketing rents have priced them out. They moved to adjacent areas-East village and Chelsea - but now these neighborhoods are too expensive, and even Brooklyn, where they fled next, is very expensive. And now rents in Jersey City are mounting. The author said that the same is true of other cities with artist colonies like Chicago and San Francisco.
