About Our Greenwich Village Tour
We don’t want to expand much on the Bohemian backyard (you get that on the tour), but let’s just say it’s undergone a lot of changes through the years. Times have certainly changed for the area that was once a burial ground (seriously). For one thing, there’s been a lot of commercialization and residential buildings going up. But let’s get to why you’re here…
On our tour, we make our way through the aforementioned Washington Square Park and its famous arch and witness first-hand some iconic cinematic spots along the way that were captured in films such as I Am Legend, Searching For Bobby Fischer, and August Rush – just to name a few.
Next, we stroll into the West Village – long considered to be the most serene section in all of Manhattan. We see the longest running Off-Broadway theatre, the narrowest house, the oldest house, and Washington Irving’s former home. Oh, and for you Friends fans, you can check out the outside of their famous apartment.
Okay, let’s not forget about the food! We make a minimum of seven stops on this tour, so bring your appetite!
