120 Charles Street, the Village: Journals and Writings, 1949-1950

PDF Holly Beye's journals are a remarkable record of a period long gone ? post- World War II in the ?Village?,New York City's downtown enclave of artists, sculptors, writers, musicians and playwrights ? when the whole world was breathing a sigu of relief because the fighting and killing were over, and, despite the continuing Cold War,people could get on with their lives.It was a time when the entire Village was your neighbor, a cauldron of hopefuls pulsing with the life and determination that would produce a generation of creative artists.You could walk anywhere, and usually did because it was cheaper. You could survive (just barely) on $20 a week, and all New York was a neighborhood. Because this is a journal, written day-by-day, it has an immediacy, a sense of being there, of sharing in the daily struggle to make ends meet while being part of the flow of kindness, fun, courage, rebellion and intense creativity that marked that time and place. The drive to create in whatever one's field happened to be is paramount, overcoming the needs and exigencies of everyday demands, an urgent determination to make a statement, a dedication instinct with life.It was a powerful, absorbing, hopeful, productive time, pregnant with promise.And it was, therefore, despite the hardship, a happy time.We are fortunate these lively, perceptive journals survived, along with their writer.Betty Ballantine, Editor and PublisherBearsville, New York
