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.

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.
