Locked by David Vazdauskas - When a group of artists illegally occupy an empty Delancey Street building to mount an unprecedented exhibition on New Year's Day 1980, the aftermath blends both opportunity and despair as 'The Real Estate Show' makes its mark.

Man Legs Runs Free by Mercedes Segesvary - An East Village dancer returns to her small Midwest hometown and discovers that the difficult life she left behind helped shape the remarkable life she lives now.

gen-tri-fi-ca-tion by Kathy Coudle-King - The real estate market is about to catch fire in 1985, and gentrification means very different things to very different neighbors, new and old, coming to grips with a brave new world downtown.

Ashes by Jane Prendergast - In the devastating aftermath of 1911's Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, a closeknit family makes new discoveries about their personal sacrifices...and other people's gain.

Resistance by Armand Ruhlman - In the early 2000's, the changing cultural landscape of the East Village forces an eccentric group of artists and off-beats, feeling increasingly threatened by the predatory nature of 21st century New York, to weigh continued rebellion against ... surrender.

Black Triangle by Lavinia Roberts - A young lawyer seeking self-definition, as well as ghosts, in today's fragmented, digital culture, finds challenges and direction in the 100 year old history of the Triangle Fire.
