INFINITE CITY is a series of walking tours exploring New York City in endless detail. This is the fourth 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 and buildings surrounding you. First, you’ll hear about the history of those who have lived and worked on this block. We’ll explore the riots and tragedies that marked these streets. Then, on the second loop, you’ll uncover the architectural history of the buildings on this ever changing street.
Join us on a walking tour unlike any other where, by putting this city block under a microscope, you'll learn about:
• The Stonecutter's Riots
• One of the greatest tragedies in New York’s history
• A home for fallen women
• The birthplace of one of America's greatest novelists
• A bachelor’s club
Each tour in the INFINITE CITY series is an accumulation of a particular place’s memories, and an obsessive compendium of its often overlooked minutiae. Keep a look out for more tours in the series on VoiceMap’s app soon!
