***About the galleries ***

99.9% of all the images on this web site were taken by my father, Robert Otter. As interest in historic images of Greenwich Village has grown, I have included a few images from Richard Friedman. He photographs only in color, and his NYC images are from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s. His work is denoted with (RF) after the image title. All other images are by Robert Otter.
