Your tour of Greenwich Village kicks off at the Waverly Diner on the corner of 6th Avenue and Waverly Place, where your guide will share the history of the village. Make your way towards Washington Square Park and check out key landmarks like the home of Edgar Allan Poe and the famous Washington Square Hotel. You'll have time to walk around the park, which still attracts musicians, performers and protestors. Your guide will take you to the Brown Building, part of the New York University Campus, which is where the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire occurred. This event was the turning point for the American labor movement and generated a press for workers' rights and safety.
You'll wander down McDougal Street and see cafes where Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and Bruce Springsteen performed early in their careers and pass by the Comedy Cellar, where Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle still perform. Learn where to get the best slice in the city and venture down Christopher Street, where you'll see The Stonewall Inn and learn about the gay rights movement.
