Last night SMAC visited a book launch of “Communist Guide to New York City” by Yevgeniy Fiks at Common Room.
The guide is a collection of 76 photographs of buildings, public places, and sites in New York City, that are connected to the history of the Communist Party USA, including photos of buildings which housed at different times the headquarters of the CPUSA, residences of important American Communists, sites where Communist-organized strikes and demonstrations took places, and court houses where American Communist leaders were tried.
The attached map locates the buildings and sites within New York City.
With essays by Olga Kopenkina, Kim Förster, and Yevgeniy Fiks.
