3. Emma Goldman’s Home, early 1900s
Emma Goldman, who the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation called “the most dangerous woman in America” lived at 208 East 13th Street from 1903 to 1913. She was highly involved in the East Village anarchist scene, speaking regularly in the area, printing her Mother Earth anarchist journal next door to her tenement residence, hosting events at Webster Hall and at the Great Hall at Cooper Union. Her influence goes far beyond New York; Goldman helped to develop much of the political philosophy of anarchy from North America to Europe.
