Greenwich Village A History & Architecture Walking Tour

Big Onion Walking Tours

Select Option


Our stroll through Greenwich Village, one of New York’s most picturesque neighborhoods, will take you on a journey from the bucolic 18th century village of Greenwich, to the early 19th century summer getaway from “the city,” through the days of the bohemian intelligentsia of the 1920s to the rockers and radicals of the 1960s. We will explore the unique and legendary home to artists, writers, and radicals. We share stories of the Gay Rights and Labor Rights movements, of iconic artists and writers such as John Sloan and Edna St. Vincent Millay, and of folk and rock musicians, including Woody Guthrie and Jimi Hendrix.

Our walk has a special emphasis on the social history and architecture of the Village. Stops could include: Jefferson Market Courthouse, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, the “hanging elm”, the Stonewall Inn, and sites associated with Stanford White, Aaron Burr, Edith Wharton, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Evelyn Nesbit, Jimi Hendrix, and Thomas Paine.
