Some revealing historical facts are scattered through Karen Kramer's documentary about Greenwich Village. Most of the film, however, is devoted to sound bites from celebrities who used to live or hang out there.

Karen Kramer's hopeful, lovingly made documentary, a ballad with a recurrent refrain, never lets us forget that the spirit will not die.
