Issue one of the East Village Eye, May 1979
Ignited in part by the changes in music, art  and fashion that occurred at CBGB, the East Village experienced a  cultural renaissance in the 1980s that matched and even exceeded the  neighborhood’s glory days in the late 1960s. The old East Village had  been chronicled by the newspaper East Village Other. For the new East Village it was the East Village Eye, whose first issue hit the street in May 1979. Shepherded through good times and bad by publisher Leonard Abrams, the Eye continued through January 1987 and ultimately numbered over 70 issues.
