The Yesteryear Issue from New York Magazine is dedicated to Little Ukraine in Manhattan
New York’s annual “Yesteryear Issue” celebrates the 54th anniversary of the magazine by paying homage to the East Village’s Little Ukraine.
“The issue tells the neighborhood’s story through successive waves of immigration and shows how the neighborhood retained its identity and culture,” says features director Genevieve Smith. The publication has collected a long history of the enclave, located on Second Avenue — about its origins, inhabitants, and the present.
The cover features a painting by Yaroslava Surmach Mills (1925–2008), who grew up in the East Village.”
