INFINITE CITY is a series of walking tours exploring New York City in endless detail. And this is the third tour in the series.
On this thirty-minute tour, we’ll walk two loops around a section of Greenwich Village. Each successive trip around the block reveals another layer of information about the people, buildings and trees surrounding you. First, you’ll travel through the history of the block as it transformed from its early incarnation as a graveyard to a cradle for avant-garde art. Then, on the second loop, you’ll uncover the stories behind the trees that line this block.
Join us on a walking tour unlike any other where, by putting this city block under a microscope, you'll learn about:
• The hangman’s house
• A bohemian theme park
• The shadowy history of the university library
• The origins of off-off-broadway theater
• Ecstatic dances around sacred trees
• The extinction of the megafauna
Each tour in the INFINITE CITY series is an accumulation of a particular place’s memories, and an obsessive compendium of its endless minutiae. Keep a look out for the release of other tours in the series on the VoiceMap app soon!
