Bursting with elaborate designs and kaleidoscopic color arrangements, this exhibit in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at The New York Botanical Garden will delight nature lovers and enchant guests of all ages who love the beauty of nature. With the theme Key West Contemporary, you can step out of the bustling city and straight into the Florida Keys, where the dramatic beauty of a flourishing tropical garden is amplified by vibrant architecture that reflects this particular island's charm and ambience. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory's sprawling glasshouse galleries are transformed into a modernist Key West estate garden, where an effusion of orchids -- including Vanda (rainbow orchids), Dendrobium (cane orchids) and Cymbidium (Asian corsage orchids) -- bloom among serene geometric reflecting pools, soaring angular pergolas and sleek benches.

Tour guide was very informative and clearly enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the history of this part of NYC , tour was well-paced and covered a reasonable distance. The others on tour (visitors from Europe) were somewhat surprised to have New Yorkers on the tour but living here doesn't mean you know the City's history. Highly recommend.

This was a great tour! We've lived in the city for years and never knew any of the history of this neighborhood. Our tour guide Michael was very informative and friendly. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the city or who already lives here.
From Edgar Allan Poe to the Beat Generation poets, discover where American literature, painting, cinema, and modern music got their start. Named after the father of American poetry, this tour will explore the origins of the neighborhood that became the incubator for the art movements in the United States, from American literature and theater to stand-up comedy and classic rock.
This stroll through the winding, twisted streets of Greenwich Village takes you to sights including Washington Square, New York University, Sheridan Square, Our Lady of Pompeii Church, and the folk music clubs of Bleecker Street. For well over a century, “The Village” has nurtured struggling artists, writers and musicians from Edgar Allan Poe to the Beat poets to Bob Dylan. See where the Roosevelt’s used to romp and where Jazz and Ragtime got much of their start. The fun quality that is the village will be found in this historic tour.
Significant Attractions Include:
• Washington Square Park and Arch
• New York University
• Stonewall Inn
• Bleecker Street
• Rocco’s Pastry Shop
