    What to Expect
    Greenwich Village and its winding streets were already here when the rest of Manhattan’s streets were laid out as a grid in the early 19th century. See those crooked streets and more during a guided walking tour that covers more than 200 years of history. Check out the beautiful, historic brownstone residential buildings and the area’s bars and restaurants.
    Edgar Allan Poe lived and wrote in this historic and beautiful neighborhood. The poet Dylan Thomas drank himself to death here. Radical thinkers John Reed and Upton Sinclair started counterculture movements, and the Village has been a haven for bohemians and a birthplace of the Beat movement. Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix played the small clubs and created some of their best music here. Your guide will also share the history of the gay rights movement as you pass landmarks.
    Experience the present, learn a lot about the past and maybe even get a glimpse into the future of this iconic space in New York City. Finish the tour in iconic Washington Square before your tour ends at Village Cigar, a West Village relic.

    We took the tour with Jenny who guided us through the highlights of Greenwich Village. Great itinerary, both in terms of discovering the quaintness of the village but also its history. Highly recommend !
