Greenwich Village Walking Tour History from Native Americans to Bohemians. Wind through the heart of Greenwich Village and its most picturesque streets while listening to intriguing stories.

Covering four hundred years of the people, cultures, and arts. From the "castles" of the Native Americans, the abodes of the founding fathers of the republic to the hangouts of the artists, writers and characters of Greenwich Village. Meet at 14th Street and 8th Avenue call to register.

Operating as usual

It is easy to maintain social distancing for the small groups of 1-2 people that I will lead through historic Greenwich Village. I recommend early morning walks through the almost deserted streets. It is a lovely time of year and the flowers are beautiful.

Spring is on walks are fun

Love to see you on one of my Marc's Village Walks. The trees in Greenwich Village are in bloom and look beautiful now. After the Washington arch was completed two statues of Washington were added. One of Washington as the soldier and the other as Washington the statesman. The latter was sculpted by Alexander Calder, the father of the artist of the same name who created the mobile.

Save the Stones

A letter I recently wrote was published in our local West View: On Gansevoort street between Hudson and Greenwich streets the original 150-year-old paving stones are being replaced by crudely cut multi colored stones with a band of black stones running down the middle. The Meatpacking District is a historic district and the original cobble stones should have been retained. [ 74 more words ]

May 1, 1961 Protest at Washington Square

57 years ago in May the City said that people could not play music in Washington Square Park any more. I and many demonstrators marched. The first time the police beat people with their clubs. After several demonstrations they rescinded the order and to this day people are free to play music in Washington Square Park. This is a copy of the article in the NY Times.

The 24th of this month will mark the 100th anniversary of the declaration of “The Independent Republic of Greenwich Village”. On the evening of January 24th 1917 a group of Greenwich Villagers and the artist Marcel Duchamp ascended the stairs in the Washington arch to a room at the top where they partied before going to the roof. They decorated the edges of the roof with colored crepe paper, shot off cap guns and declared the Independent Republic of Greenwich Village. #walkingtour #sightseeing #nyctours #nysights #newyorkwalks #marcsvillagewalk #greenwichvillage #nyhistory #history
