Full description

Visit New York City’s most storied neighborhood, Greenwich Village on an exciting walking tour. See the locations and hear the stories that, for decades have attracted locals and visitors alike to this fascinating area.

Discover a part of the city much loved by native New Yorkers. Start at Washington Square Park, a buzzing city hangout, where you'll see cobblestoned mews and 19th-century brownstone carriage houses. Glimpse some of New York’s rarest sights, such as the home where John Wilkes Booth spoke openly of his plan to murder President Abraham Lincoln. Pass by such landmarks as the Jefferson Market Library and Bleecker Street, as well as the places where Hemingway, Edgar Allan Poe, Jackson Pollock lived and worked.

Explore a quirky mix of quiet streets and charming townhouses, some dating to the 1820s. See one of the last remaining wood-frame houses in The Village, as well as the narrowest house in New York City. Visit a Village area that was once a thriving neighborhood of Italian immigrants. Admire the 928 Italian Renaissance-style Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, still an active part of the community. Walk along a quiet lane named for an underground brook before seeing the house where Louisa May Alcott lived, and where she may have written part of Little Women. End your tour at Washington Square Park, where you get to see a spectacular view of One Fifth Avenue and the monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi, known as the George Washington of Italy.
