Greenwich Village Walking Tour

Walk About New York

What You'll Get

Tour sights include Washington Square Park; Lower Fifth Avenue; the Jefferson Market Library; charming Abingdon Square Park; the garden of the Church of St. Luke in the Fields; the oldest wood-framed house in Greenwich Village and the narrowest house in New York City and much more.

Begin in Washington Square, and walk to Lower Fifth Avenue, with its historic NeoGothic-styled churches, including the First Presbyterian Church.

The Village’s most eclectic building, the Jefferson Market Library is where a scandalous murder trial was held; learn why. Cross paths with the unusual intersection of West 10th Street and West Fourth Street.

Take a stroll stroll through charming Abingdon Square Park, and then walk along the street that Simon & Garfinkle immortalized in their song, Bleecker Street. Today’s high-end boutiques that line the street are a far cry from the 1960s, when the song was written.

Greenwich Village is a quirky mix of quiet streets and charming townhouses. We will see the oldest wood-framed house in the Village, as well as the narrowest house in all of New York City.

We will visit a section of the Village that was once a thriving neighborhood of Italian immigrants. Its anchor, the 1928 Italian Renaissance-styled Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, is still an active part of the community.

We will walk along a charming lane that gets its name from an underground brook before seeing the house where Louisa May Alcott lived. We will take in the sights along the south side of Washington Square. Before we re-enter the park, and see a spectacular view of One Fifth Avenue and the Giuseppe Garibaldi Monument, where the tour will end.
