Walking tour of the lovely and bohemian Village, NYU & High Line. NYC people-watching among historic sites & celebrity homes.


Greenwich Village has long been a magnet for bohemians and intellectuals. Artists and writers, like Edgar Allan Poe & Mark Twain, gave the neighborhood its freewheeling identity.

The Village is one of NYC's most appealing and unique neighborhoods. After visiting NYU and Washington Square Park we'll walk down tree-lined streets with town houses and ivy-covered brownstones. Village streets meander at will, as Manhattan's grid doesn't apply here, adding to the identity of the area. Large chain stores are rare, instead you'll find funky boutiques, galleries and sidewalk cafes.

We'll visit the High Line, a west side park with beautiful views of the Hudson River that runs ABOVE the streets on the abandoned New York Central Railroad.

I believe in delivering a superior product at the best price. My reviews show guests are always happy. Book your NYC tour with me and you'll be pleased too.

Itinerary

We'll meet at the north entrance of Washington Square Park under the grand arch. We'll take the time to walk around the park and give you a feel for the neighborhood.

Settled during colonial times Greenwich Village gets its name because it was a village in the woods north of what then a tiny New York City. As such, the streets of Greenwich Village don't follow the same grid pattern as the rest of Manhattan so we'll wander streets so secluded you'll forget you're in NYC. We'll pass some celebrity homes and celebrity sightings on this tour are not unusual. Some of the sites you can expect to see include but are not limited to:

Washington Square Park
Edgar Allan Poe House
NYU
Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Site
Mark Twain's Home
Jefferson Market Library

Finally we will tour the High Line. A former freight line in the middle of Manhattan it has been transformed into a beautiful, elevated urban park.

I will give you history and stories while adding a very personal touch to your tour.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your hotel or the location of your choosing before beginning our tour.

For cruise customers I will meet you at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal - Pier 88 & 90. If you are cruising to New York and your ship is arriving in either Brooklyn or Bayonne please inquire about times and costs.

End location: Your tour finishes at the 23rd Street exit of the High Line. There is plenty of transit nearby and I will give you detailed directions how to get back to your hotel or the destination of your choice.

Duration: 4 hours

This is a walking tour done completely outdoors. We will do the tour rain or shine.

Transportation

This is a walking tour; for the Greenwich Village we won't need transportation at all.
