Take a 2-hour guided tour of the ‘birthplace of American Counter-Culture,’ Greenwich Village, home to a large community of artists, writers, and eccentrics on the Greenwich Village Walking Tour.
Join in solidarity where the gay rights movement began, grab a coffee made with the oldest espresso machine in America, and walk the streets where authentic American culture was born. You’ll get to explore one of the most culturally-rich neighborhoods of the city and learn about the history that precluded this modern village within the city.
As you wander the streets, taking in the beautiful landscapes of Washington Square Park, you’ll see some of the city’s most talented musicians, artists, and hustlers going about their daily routines. Explore the area’s quaint-yet-glamorous side streets, home to some of New York’s wealthiest and most famous residents.
You might recognize the famous street corner from Friends or the alfresco venue from Mozart in the Jungle, among other recognizable backdrops from TV and film. Your tour guide will fill you in on some Greenwich Village history related to some of its most famous and notorious residents and visitors, including Bob Dylan, Edgar Allen Poe, John Wilkes Booth, and more.
