Lewis was awarded the Charles M. Lea prize from the Print Club of Philadelphia for two consecutive years in 1930 and 1931 for The Glow of the City (1929) and Spring Night, Greenwich Village (1930).
McCarron writes, page, 154: "Like a movie's opening scene, Spring Night, Greenwich Village presents a flurry of expository activity-lovers in a doorway, a cobbler working in his shop, walking passers-by, and running children - all figures in varying degrees of motion from slow to fast."
