Video: Jersey Homesteads-in the Architectural Vanguard (2008), introduced by Ben Johnson, who wrote, produced, narrated and co-directed and co-edited it with Fletcher Grayson of Graymedia. The documentary explains that the plans for Jersey Homesteads, later renamed Roosevelt, were grounded in the Bauhaus and Garden City movements of early 20th century Europe, and details the town’s initial planning and construction in the 1930s, showing the defining architectural features of the house models.
Using archival photographs of Jersey Homesteads and interviews of both professionals and local residents (some of whom are descendents of the original settlers), the film demonstrates that this unique community settled by Jewish garment workers from New York City was at the vanguard of architectural design for its time.  Mr. Johnson will respond to questions after the showing.
