* Tour Description *

The Snapshot:
The Melting Pot of the Village filled with off-the-radar eateries, tales of the 1960's NYC music scene & a stroll through historic Washington Square Park
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 specialty food shops. This area of the Village has been a melting pot since the mid 1800's and is still filled with delicious foods from around the world!

This part of the Village is also known for its counter culture, once enjoyed by bohemians, beatniks, artists, and folk singers. Relish in the rich, varied history of this vibrant and intriguing neighborhood as its past and present unfolds before you.

Stroll through Washington Square Park, view architecture from the 19th century, and discover authentic live music, comedy & food establishments (like the oldest coffee shop in the Village, 1906). Sample a tasty variety of food specialties from cafes & restaurants.

This tour DOES NOT overlap with our Original Greenwich Village Food Tour. Runs east of 6th Ave & west of Broadway.
