The Heart of The Village
Food and Culture Walking Tour

* Tour Description *

The Snapshot:
Take a culinary journey to the corner of New York favored by rebels, gangsters, hippies, musicians, and legends. Explore the downtown streets known for serving up expertly crafted food.
The Full Description:

Tour through the heart of New York's Greenwich Village. As we explore, you will discover favorite neighborhood cafes (where the first cappuccino was served in America) and unique specialty food shops (including a tea shop housed inside a former mafia hangout). Stroll on MacDougal Street which has been called, "the most colorful, magnetic and delicious street in NYC."

Taste hand-made pasta at an authentic Italian trattoria, indulge in freshly-baked award-winning oatmeal cookies at the world's first oatmeal bar, and savor the aroma of fresh coffee kept in traditional burlap sacks. Imagine skillfully prepared food tastings - with a distinctly New York spin.

Walk the same streets where musical legends like Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix found inspiration, and where comedy icons like Jerry Seinfeld, Louie CK, and Chris Rock can still be found dropping by for a set. See the clubhouse of La Cosa Nostra and the tavern where "family" business was done.

Discover where to go for live music, top-notch comedy & mom and pop food establishments. When you think you've seen it all, head to the area's most well known meeting place - Washington Square Park - where you'll find musicians, poets, and performers keeping the offbeat traditions of the neighborhood alive.

This tour does NOT overlap with our Original Greenwich Village Food Tour.
