Meet your guide on the corner of Waverly Place and 6th Avenue and set off in the footsteps of Henry James and Edgar Allan Poe. Learn about artists, such as Jackson Pollack, who gave the neighborhood its freewheeling identity. Hear stories of radical thinkers like Upton Sinclair and John Reed, who debated in smoky cafés.
Feel the energy of “the Village” as you stroll from Washington Square Park to the haunts and hideaways of Dylan Thomas, Jimi Hendrix and Lenny Bruce. Savor stories of how the Beat Generation flourished here, and uncover some of New York's rarest sights - including the smallest piece of private property in the city!
