Unravel the stories of some of the greatest artists in the world when you explore Greenwich Village on the Edgar Allen Poe walking tour. Named after the father of American poetry, this tour delves into the origins of the neighbourhood that became the national epicentre of creativity, political freedom and self-expression. Find out why beatniks, bohemians and starving artists all made a beeline for the cramped brownstones and coffeehouses of Greenwich Village. Take a stroll through the winding streets and check out the chess players in Washington Square. Presided over by the Washington Arch, the square has formed a meeting place and centre for cultural life throughout New York’s history. Then visit New York University, whose musical and literary alumni keep the Greenwich Village dream alive. Sit for a while in Sheridan Square, centre of New York’s gay rights movement, or linger among the flowers outside the beautiful Our Lady of Pompeii Church. Don’t forget to check out upcoming shows at the seminal folk music clubs of Bleecker Street where music history was made. Learn how literature, painting, cinema, and modern music all flourished in this enclave of the avant-garde. From Edgar Allan Poe to Simon and Garfunkel, via smoky jazz clubs and poetry readings, travel back in time with us to discover the original birthplace of Cool America. Languages English.
