Under the magnificent photogenic Washington Square Arch, the heart of bohemian Greenwich Village, the tour heads past the former homes of great writers, artists, poets, actors, and musicians. In the radical sixties, the Village was a mecca for political extremism, including the notorious Weathermen’s building. Movie sights abound, as hundreds of films are made here every year. _Sex and the City _owes much of its existence to the Village. We pass Mayor Jimmy Walker’s house, the home for The Cosby Show, and the apartment building where the exteriors for Friends were filmed.
Touring Little Italy treats customers to a host of fine restaurants and historic moments in Italian-American history. The stories of Joey Gallo, John Gotti and his infamous Ravenite Social Club, Umberto’s Clam House, Lombardi’s Pizza and other attractions which make this ethnic enclave a legend.
Swinging through the edge of Chinatown, the tour heads into the East Village, the world center of punk rock in the 1970’s, continues by Tompkins Square Park in the heart of Alphabet City, passes by St. Mark’s-in-the-Bowery and even the world famous kosher Katz’s Deli, ending at the entrance to Manhattan’s ever-growing Chinatown and its wonders of Asian cuisine and cultural fascination.
