Left Bank Books says
"St. Marks Is Dead: The Many Lives of America’s Hippest Street" is a vibrant narrative history of three hallowed Manhattan blocks that have spawned countless artistic and political movements, providing a backdrop for social and cultural revolutionaries from Leon Trotsky to Andy Warhol. In this "lush love letter to America's most fascinating street," St. Marks native Ada Calhoun traces the 400-year history of the area from its origins as a Dutch farm to its current incarnation as a hipster playground.

The book contains surprising stories and moving insights on religion and race from the late Christ Church rector Father Michael Allen, who before his time in St. Louis was the "hippie priest" of New York City's notorious St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery.
