The Heart of The Village
Food and Culture Walking Tour
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 and magnetic street in NYC."
Taste hand-made pasta at an authentic Italian trattoria, indulge in award-winning oatmeal cookies at the world's first oatmeal bar, and savor the aroma of fresh coffee kept in traditional burlap sacks.
At heart, Greenwich Village is a place for revolutionaries: Its culture is the counter-culture. In a rabble-rousing city, this is the most radical neighborhood, and that spirit is everywhere--including the food. Imagine skillfully prepared meals influenced by their surroundings: Old World preparations, avant-garde ingredients and ethnic flavors with a distinctly New York spin.
Walk streets named for the renegades who fought alongside George Washington, 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 & delicious delicacies (like the oldest coffee purveyor in the Village, 1907). 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.
