When the street grid of Manhattan was developed in the early 19th century, Greenwich Village had long been in existence — hence the area’s crooked and winding streets. Today the neighborhood is a charmingly confusing tangle of leafy lanes flanked by bars, restaurants and beautiful, historic brownstone residential buildings. It was on these streets that some of the city’s most legendary bohemians worked and played.
Your expert guide will share intriguing historical anecdotes about where the gay rights movement began and where radical thinkers like John Reed and Upton Sinclair started counterculture movements. See some spots that will look very familiar from TV shows such as Friends and Sex and the City. Walk through Washington Square Park, the heart of the neighborhood, where today folk and jazz musicians still try to make a living playing for passersby. See where the Beat Generation of writers wrote and hung out. Learn where 1960s icons Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin played and drank and got wild.
The tour, covering a small geographic area but more than 200 years of history, concludes at the iconic Washington Square Park, leaving you free to continue to explore the area on your own.
